Viñales. 284g

This meteorite fell on February 1st, 2019 in the province of Pinar del Rio, Cuba. A loud sonic boom was heard by the locals and recorded in a video. Its smoke trail was photographed from a plane and recorded by several people in Cuba and even in the United States, where the weather radars recorded the event. Fragments have been mainly found in Viñales, a town in which people live on tourism and tobacco production. Due to the extensive rains, plants in the area are very tall, which makes finding the meteorites an almost imposible task.
