standing in front of his hut when he heard a strange sound like the
sound of a plane coming towards him. When he looked at the sky,
he saw a black object falling towards him. The object fell about
15 meters away from him. His son, standing under a tree about 30
meters away, also saw the falling object and started running
towards his father, but before he could reach him, the object had
made it to Earth with a loud crash. Then there was another loud
fall about 2-2.5km away, in Danduma, a small village westnorthwest
of the town Adara on the Niger Republic side, where
two pieces of the meteorite, including the main mass, were
recovered. Neighbours running to the site found a black stone

Carbonaceous Chondrite Probably a CO3
This meteorite fell on July 14th, 2006 at ~10:15 am in the Ostfold region of Norway. 
Pieces were scattered from the village of Rygge to the center of Moss in a ~6 kilometer line. 
The fall was witnessed by thousands of people, who described it as brighter than the sun, 
and many said they saw at least five pieces falling. One piece landed in a garden after 
breaking the limb of a plumb tree off. Another piece landed on a metal plate near a 
man who was using an outdoor toilet. This was the first piece recovered. 
A third piece imbedded itself in the roof of a building in Moss and was found only after 
more than two weeks when rain water leaking into the building forced a search for the leak. 
A fourth piece weighing ~800 grams was found by Morten Bilet and Mike Farmer on 30 July at a
