Mbozi Meteorit

The Mbozi meteorite near Mbeya in Tanzanias Southern Highlands is  the world's 4th largest meteorite. The meteorite is 3m long, 1.5 m high and weighs an estimated 25 tons. 90% of its composition is iron, with roughly 8% nickel and traces of other elements including phosphorus.

The Mbozi meteorite has no crater.

Mbozi has been long known to local chiefs, who call it kimwondo, yet became known to outsiders only in the 1940s. The one who disclosed the secret to an English professor paid it with his life according to local historians.
