Adrar Province, Algeria2 min read
January 27, 2020 6:39 AM CET – U.S. Government sensors detected a large meteor fireball travelling WSW into the Algerian desert. Total atmospheric impact energy was equivalent to 150 tonnes of TNT, indicating a pre-entry meteoroid diameter of ~1.2 meters! The location is very remote, and meteorite hunting is regulated in Algeria, but there are almost certainly meteorites on the ground there.

I am a meteorite hunter from Algeria, Ouargla Province. There are meteorites that fell in the desert. Can we deal with each other?
Hello, thank you for contacting us. The problem with finding fresh falls in the Sahara is lack of video cameras. Without video data, it is very difficult to find anything. Please report your observations to report.strewnify.com and share this link with anyone who saw the meteors. You may email me at firstname.lastname@example.org for more info.

No news, I don’t think it was ever found, but the search area is very large. It would be worthwhile to keep searching.
