Swedish experts find 14 kilo meteorite after fireball

The geologists made the find near the place Enköping, reports the natural history museum in Stockholm. An astronomer had calculated where the meteorite must have hit last year.

It was an area northwest of the capital, where smaller parts of the space rock were later discovered.

The piece that has now been discovered is about 12 inches long. According to the museum, it is the first time in over sixty years that a meteorite that had been seen by humans has been found in Sweden. The space rock was much larger at first, probably weighing about 9 tons when it flew into the atmosphere.

In the Netherlands, people also saw a fireball in the sky last year. It may have been a meteor. View the images below:
