During the night between 27 and 28 December 1998, a brilliant fireball and loud noises were reported by several people in Beja region. Antonio Silva recovered the first fragments two days after the fall and, subsequently, local villagers recovered other pieces. The meteorite made an elliptical crater 20 centimetres (7.9 in) deep, 60 centimetres (24 in) long and 30 centimetres (12 in) wide. Most of all fragments were found within an elliptical area long 55 metres (180 ft).

ACTUAL AS SEEN: The image shows the EXACT specimen you will receive. The specimen has been carefully hand selected and photographed. Measurements are as accurate as possible, though be aware measuring precise dimensions can be difficult from irregular shaped items. Whilst we portray colours as close to life-like as we can, colours will vary if taken in sunlight, indoors, from monitor to monitor and device to device. Once this specimen is sold, we will update this listing with new similar selected item, with a new photo and dimensions.
