HED meteorites

They are a rare type of meteorite that comes from Asteroid Vesta. A great impact occurred in the South hemisphere of Vesta less than 1 billion years ago, ejecting rocks from the asteroid into space. Eventually some of these rocks fell on Earth. HED is an acronym for the meteorites that comprise this clan; Howardites, Eucrites, and Diogenites. Only 3% of all known meteorites belong to the HED clan. Learn more
