Wabar or Ubar has been known for a very long time as a legendary city in Arabia, destroyed in an instant by divine intervention.
In reality pieces of the meteorite were found in the Rub al Khali, Empty Quarter of southern Saudi Arabia, a large sand desert, in 1933, as several small masses. A much larger mass of 2170 kilos was found later in 1966 next to a large crater. The sand dunes have since moved and covered the site.
