The Benguerir meteorite fell on November 22, 2004 at ~11:45 GMT in Morocco. Benguerir is classified as an ordinary chondrite, LL6/. A bright fireball followed be a meteorite shower was observed to fall near Benguerir (~50 kilometers due north of Marrakech) by villagers. The fall had an east-to-west trajectory. The estimated total mass recovered is ~25-30 kilograms. Many stones fell over several villages.

I bought this stone, in Morocco a few months after the fall. It is the best large piece I have seen of this meteorite..
