PASAMONTE, New Mexico
The Pasamonte fireball was one of the largest and most brilliant
ever seen in recent times. It was said to have been brighter than the sun.
Based on the amount of dust in the air after the event, the original mass
was estimated at over a million tons. but all that was recovered was a
few small stones. (There must be more out there somewhere, but it's a tough
place to search). This is a very fragile meteorite.
