The Tamdakht H5 Chondrite meteorite was observed as a fireball on December 20, 2008 traveling West to East with people in the High Atlas Mountains hearing a sound and feeling the ground shake. It took a few weeks to find the first pieces of the meteorite due to the mountainous region and snow. Our friend Dr. Svend Buhl from Germany has a wonderful trip report which we have a link to in the About Tamdakht Meteorite section below.
