Tamdakht

Ordinary chondrite, H5
Witnessed fall in Tamdakht, (Ouarzazate) Morocco, December 2008

Tamdakht is a rare witnessed fall from Morocco. Observers in Agadir, Marrakesh and elsewhere reported a fireball at 22:37 hrs (local time; UT+00) and shock waves were recorded in the Atlas Mountains. These handsome stones are coated in rich black fusion crust and some show regmaglypts. A must for collectors of witnessed falls.
