Description

On November 6, 2021, at around 1 pm, Saharawi people residing in the refugee camp of Dakhla (about 200 km south of Tindouf, Algeria) heard a strong sonic boom confirmed by many people in the neighboring countries of Mauritania and Western Sahara. A few days later, many meteorite fragments with fresh fusion crust have been recovered by meteorite hunters in northern Mauritania close to the Algerian border (Tindouf province). El Hassan Ould Hamed or EHOH 002 is classified as an L4 chondrite. Pieces exhibit fresh black fusion crust with brown hues and a grey interior.
