3kg metoerite discovered in Occitanie garden
A Belgian couple who live in Beaugas, Lot-et-Garonne have found a 3kg meteorite in their garden, La Depeche reported.
Claudine and Claude Guermant, aged 76 and 80 explained that “it was about the size of a coconut, weighing 3kg. It was grey and dark green in colour. It was mostly smooth with some rough patches.”
Claude, who is a retired professor of biochemistry, checked out the ’stone’. The weight was unusually heavy, and there were very high levels of magnetic forces. Claude put a compass near the stone. The compass “went crazy and it hasn’t worked since.”
