On 7 November, countless people from the Swedish region saw a ball of fire that lit up the sky for about three seconds.

Astronomer Eric Stampels of Uppsala University calculated the approximate location of the impact where small fragments of an iron meteorite were later found. The main piece now discovered is about 30 centimeters long and probably represents the largest remainder of the celestial body, which, according to Stampel, originally weighed an estimated nine tons when entering the atmosphere. Some small parts are still suspected in the area.
