TKW 50 kg. Observed fall 1 June 2018, Xishuangbanna City, Yunnan Province, China..


Ziyao writes:
A massive meteorite lit up the sky as it burst through the atmosphere over Yunnan in southwest China on Friday evening 2018.06.01 , shocking local residents with its fiery glow. The meteorite created a burst of white light over Yunnan’s Jinghong skyscrapers at about 9:43pm. The meteorite left a flaming path in its wake as it cut through the night sky before disappearing seconds later.

I would like to see what the inside looks like. A nicely polished slice would be good.
