Aba Panu. 67g

On the afternoon of 19 April 2018, a large fireball detonated over the Nigerian state of Oyo. This fireball was recorded by NASAs Center for Near Earth Object Studies as event 2018-04-19 14:02:27. The meteoroid entered at 20.9 km/s and detonated at an altitude of 30 km. Aba Panu is classified as an L3 chondrite. Aba Panu meteorites are mostly rounded with broad poorly developed regmaglypts, and largely lacking fusion crust. This is probably due to the fact that it was raining when it fell.
