Ixtlahuacán, México – Tuesday, July 25, 2023, 8:41 PM local time, A very large meteor was observed heading west at 16 km/s, and ending at a height of 36 km above the ground. Although the atmospheric impact was equivalent to the energy of over 400 tonnes of TNT, there was a distinct lack of visible fragmentation, and it burned out relatively high above the ground, making the recovery of meteorites unlikely.
