|Title||Paper, 'Examination of the meteorite which fell on the 16th February, 1883, at Alfianello, in the district of Verolannova, in the province of Brescia, Italy' by Walter Flight|
|Description||Flight writes: 'I gather from a short preliminary notice, which has been sent by M. Denza to Professor Daubree, and has been published in a recent number of the “Comptes Rendus,” a few particulars respecting the fall of this stone, and its general appearance. The fall took place, with a loud detonation, at 2.55pm on the day above mentioned; it was heard in the neighbouring provinces of Cremona, Verona, Mantua, Piacenza, and Parma. In Alfianello it is described as "épouvantable" [appalling].'|
