Meteorite Fall of the Century!
On February 15, 2013, a large fireball entered the earth's atmosphere in the Russian Urals. Arguably the largest bolide event in the past hundred years, the meteorites produced exploded over Chelyabinsk. The Big Kahuna acquired some of the freshest, most pristine and complete individuals that were recovered within the first few days of the fall and before the next snowfall.
On December 16, 2012, a fireball was seen in the afternoon, near the village of Mehaires, Western Sahara. The Big Kahuna acquired some of the freshest, complete individuals that were recovered. This L6 has a shock grade of 6, and cut slices show much shock alteration and melt phases.
In early June 2013, A. Bouferra, a meteorite hunter from Smara, reported a new carbonaceous chondrite that had been found close to Smara. Due to its proximity to Smara (7 km), many meteorite hunters visited the area in the summer of 2013. Big Kahuna has acquired some of the freshest, cleanest specimens from this Moroccan find.
