Fisher (Polk County, Minnesota, USA) L6 (stone) Fell 9th April 1894

To date, the Fisher meteorite is the only witnessed fall in the US state of Minnesota. The total known weight of this fall remains low at only 15kg, with some of the recovered specimens being lost over the past 100 years. Here's what the Catalogue of Meteorites says about Fisher: In April detonations were heard and in June two stones were found, one of 9.25lb (4.2kg) and a larger one, which was broken and mostly lost; later, in 1895, two other small pieces were found, and in 1898 another stone of about 3lb (1.4kg). A hard to get witnessed fall from Minnesota.
