For the first time ever, astronomers discovered an asteroid headed straight for Earth, and later found fragments of the meteorite, named “Almahata Sitta,”

scattered on the ground. This made Almahata Sitta unique. The story began in space, where its path around the Sun bought it into Earth’s trajectory. Despite the inevitable collision, some fragments survived their descent through our atmosphere, falling into the desert in Sudan, where they were later collected by scientists.

Come see a piece of this meteorite and learn more about it!
