14kg meteorite found in Sweden

Two Swedish meteorite hunters have discovered a 14kg meteorite.

Andreas Forsberg and Anders Zetterqvist, two geologists from Stockholm, discovered the iron meteorite in a forest.

However, they kept their find secret until last month to ensure it was a meterorite.

Experts saw the meteorite hit earth in late November. The pair were then part of a group of around 50 people who then hunted for the remains on earth,

An astronomer at Uppsala University, used a network of cameras to calculate a 16-square-kilometre fall zone.

On November 16th, Zetterqvist found the place where the meteorite had hit the ground. The next day, November 17th, they found the first fragments of the rock.

They alerted Sweden’s Museum of Natural History on November 22nd, and the museum announced the discovery of the fragments on January 26th.
