Pultusk (Warsaw, Poland) H5 (stone) Fell 30th January 1868

After the appearance of a bright fireball followed by loud detonations, a shower of stones fell over an area of several square miles between Pultusk and Ostrolenka on the Narew, Poland. Many of the meteorites recovered were surprisingly small, and weighed just a few grams each - these have since been nick-named "Pultusk Peas". Some estimate that the total number of stones must have been in the order of 100,000 but nowhere near that many have actually been recovered. This is an old, historical European fall, which has been well preserved.
