Large meteorite fell to Argentina

April 8 2008

Large meteorite fell on the territory of the Argentine province of Entre Rios. According to preliminary estimates, its dimensions are comparable to the size of a car.

Representatives of the local association of astronomers noted that according to their calculations, the speed of a meteorite at the time of the fall to the Earth could range from 80 thousand to 200 thousand kilometers per hour.

Argentine astronomers believe the meteorite as it approaches the Earth is changing colors: first it was red, then - in blue. As written by Interfax , experts and police are currently looking for fragments of the meteorite.
