Animation of All 1,045 Observed Meteoriteszoom in

Carlo Zapponi developed this amazing animated timeline of each of the 1,045 meteorites that have been observed falling to Earth in recorded history. Meteorites fall with virtually equal probability everywhere on the Earth, eye-witnessed meteorites tend to be concentrated in areas with high human population densities such as Europe, Japan, and northern India. The data comes from The Meteorite Bulletin, constructed and maintained by the Nomenclature Committee of the Meteoritical Society.
