The Peekskill meteorite struck a parked 1980 red Chevy Malibu in Peekskill, New York in the early evening of October 9th, 1992. When it struck Earth, the meteorite weighed 26 pounds and measured a foot in diameter.
The event was witnessed by thousands across the East Coast. Because it was a Friday evening, its descent was captured on video by many high school football fans taping local games. The multiple perspectives gave scientists the ability to calculate the meteorite’s exact flight path to Earth.
