Pultusk (H5)

On January 30, 1868, near the small town of Pultusk, Poland, a number of people observed a large fireball plummeting through the night sky. The fireball broke apart in a series of detonations and produced a sizable shower of small fragments, known as Pultusk Peas, across an area of more than 127 km. The total known weight of the meteorite is estimated to be around 250 kg.
