Tissint is the rarest of the rare; a witnessed Martian meteorite from Morocco. On July 18, 2011, witnesses near Tata, Morocco reported seeing a green fireball, at first yellow in color, illuminating the area split into two parts. Two sonic booms accompanied the visual phenomenon, alerting nomads in the vicinity of what they would later find: fresh, fusion-crusted stone meteorites. Stones of varying sizes were recovered in the El Ga’ïdat plateau and the El Aglâb Mountains, with the largest being an impressive 987 gram crusted stone. Tissint is classified as a Martian shergottite, which are named after the Shergotty meteorite that fell in India in 1865.
