The circumstances of fall or discovery: a bolide was observed which lit up the area for 5-6 seconds, over a radius of 25-40 km. The direction of the bolide's flight was from northeast to west (relative to Diapaga). Three blows were heard, and then a noise similar to that of an aircraft and, finally, the blow of the meteorite as it struck the ground. The meteorite was found on November 20, 5 km west of the village of Nadiabondi. It entered the soil to a depth of 25 cm. The meteorite has been placed in the collection of the National Museum of Natural History in Paris.
