Sericho pallasite meteorite from Habaswein Kenya
Two brothers were looking for their camels near the village of Habaswein in Kenya when they came across a number of large stones. There were no other stones in the surrounding area and the brothers concluded that these should be meteorites.
Playing on meteorites
They spent a few weeks collecting everything and took it to their house in Habaswein. A village elder told how he played on the stones as a child. After investigation it turned out to be indeed a meteorite, and a special one too!
This pallasite was initially called Habaswein, after the neighbouring town. Ultimately, the meteorite was officially named Sericho, after the Keynesian area where the impact took place.
