Description

On Aug. 14, 1992, a meteorite entered the atmosphere over Mbale, Uganda and exploded into hundreds of pieces! Debris from this meteorite shower was strewn over an area of about 2 by 4 miles, and the biggest piece weighed more than 60 pounds! Scientists estimated that the original meteorite weighed upwards of 2,000 pounds. A young boy was hit in the head with a smaller meteorite fragment, but thankfully no one was seriously injured or killed by any of the falling space rocks.
