Orvinio H6 black br.; fell 1872 August 31 in Italy, 0.64 g.

1872. August 31st, 5.15 A.M. (Rome mean time) Orvinio (...), near Rome.

A meteor was seen at daybreak by many observers in the provinces of Rome, Umbria, Abruzzo, and Terra di Lavoro. At first it appeared like a large star of red colour. It increased in brilliancy as it traversed the sky in a northerly direction, leaving a white train. At a certain point it became brilliantly white, and then vanished, a luminous cloud remaining, which was visible for a quarter of an hour. The meteor appears to have crossed the coast-line at a point near Terracina, to have passed over Piperno in a direction 7W. of N., and moving N.N.E. over Cori and Gennazzano, to have exploded over the latter town. After the lapse of two to three minutes, two reports were heard, the first like that of a cannon, the second like a series of from three to six guns fired in rapid succession. The greater part of the stone fell at Orvinio, over which place the second explosion appears to have taken place, and some fragments were carried further northward. Six fragments of the meteorite, weighing collectively 3.396 kilogs., have been found.
