Campo del Cielo iron meteorite
This iron meteorite hit the earth about 5,000 years ago on the border of the provinces of Chaco and Santiago del Estero in Argentina. The impact created 26 craters over an area of 60km². The largest crater has a diameter of 70 meters and is approximately 5 meters deep.
Field of Heaven
The former residents thought the iron debris came from the sun. And called the place of impact "Campo del Cielo" ( "Field of Heaven"). In 1576, the meteorite was (re) discovered by the Spaniards. These pieces are newly found at ten centimeters deep without standing water. This makes that rust has almost no effect on these meteorites.
