Bjurbole is the biggest recent meteorite fall found in Finland so far. This meteorite broke into many pieces when it hits the sea ice in the gulf of Finland, on the 12 March 1899.
328 kg of material were recovered from 8 meters deep (0.4 meter ice 0.5 meter water and 7 meters mud) by divers. The meteorite had made a 4 meter wide hole in the ice, and mud was spread over a 24 x 33 m wide...
The Kamil Crater in Egypt was found by V. De Michele in 2009 using Google Earth. An article in Science Express today announced the results of a 2010 expedition to the site. The site is indeed an impact crater, 45 meters in diameter and 16 meters deep, created by an iron meteorite 1.3 meters in diameter. Over 5,000 meteorite fragments were identified, totaling 1.7 tons!

The Odessa crater was formed by a spectacular collision with our planet of an iron meteorite 63,500 years ago.
The Odessa meteorite, named after the town ten miles southwest in western Texas not far from the southeastern corner of New Mexico carved out five clustered craters, four small ones and a larger one. The largest is about 525 feet across and nearly 100 feet deep.
This exceptionally long and bright fireball was seen throughout the Yukon, Northern British Columbia, parts of Alaska, and the Northwest Territories.
Pieces of the 56-metric-ton meteorite rained down over a wide area of Canada on January 18, 2000, at approximately 16:43 UT (08:43 PST local).
Many pieces landed on the frozen Tagish Lake, allowing scientists to recover numerous samp...

I thought it was the second largest in the world bu...
