It exploded at low altitude and fell very early in the morning of June 27, 1931, just north of the town of Tatahouine in southern Tunisia.
Thousands of fragments were collected then by the local people, and much later by Alain and Louis Carion. Most fragments are tiny, 1 gram or less. Fragments larger than 10 grams
are quite rare.
