Meteorites are pieces of naturally formed space debris that have been blasted off the surface of an asteroid or planet. These chunks of space rock can occasionally intersect Earth’s orbit to make a fiery descent through our atmosphere and impact the ground ready to find as a meteorite. Meteorites are split into two distinct types – Stones and Irons. Campo del Cielo is an Iron and fell in Argentina where it was discovered by Spanish explorers in 1576. Iron meteorites are pieces of the once molten core of large asteroids or other planetary bodies that at some point have been blasted apart by violent impacts.
