Meteorito Dronino Ataxita desagrupada - 70×30×19 mm - 52.8 g

Ryazan district, Russia
Found July 2000
Iron, ataxite (ungrouped)

A 40 kg iron was found by Oleg Gus’kov, Moscow resident, as he was returning home from collecting mushrooms near the village of Dronino in the Ryazan district. In early 2003, it was taken to Vernad, and identified as meteoritic. In summer 2003, scientific expeditions and meteorite hunters collected more than 600 fragments (the largest is 250 kg) totaling about 3 000 kg and occurring at a depth of 0.2-2 m across an area of 0.5x1.5 km. The distribution of the fragments suggests that the meteorite formed a now-buried crater about 30 m in diameter. This crater is not reflected in the present-day topography of the site. No historical records exist of a meteorite fall, thus it appears likely that the meteorite fell earlier than the 12th century when the area was largely unpopulated.
