14 kg heavy meteorite found in Sweden

Two swades near Encoping, northwest of Stockholm, made a rare discovery and handed it over to the museum. According to the museum, this is the first time in 60 years that a meteorite has been found during an accident in Sweden.
A ball of fire was seen by countless people from the Swedish region on 7 November, which lit up the sky for about three seconds.
Astronomer Eric Stampels of Uppsala University then 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 the largest of the celestial bodies, which according to Stampel originally weighed an estimated nine tons when entering the atmosphere. Some small parts are still suspected to be in the area.
