EVERY KNOWN METEORITE FALL ON EARTH
This map shows every meteorite fall on Earth that we know about; where scientists have found either meteorites or impact craters. Some of these craters and meteorite fragments date as far back as the year 2300 BCE. The data for the image is from The Meteoritical Society and does not show places where meteorites might have fallen but no trace has yet been found.
