A Meteorite in Beirut!

I just found out that in 1921 a meteorite fell on Beirut, I did a little research about it and here’s what I got:

  • It fell on the last day of 1921 (12-31-1921) so I guess some people thought the world was ending :P
  • It weights 1.1 Kg
  • Its Official name is Beyrout
  • It’s one of 17 meteorites classified as LL3.8

I was also able to get a picture of it but couldn’t find any info on where they are keeping it and who is keeping it, anyways here it is:
