On December 3rd 1917, a cold clear winters day, many people in east central Scotland witnessed a meteor, at around 1pm, enter the atmosphere east of Dunbar. The meteor passed north west over Fife ands the Sidlaws Hills where it broke up in mid-air.Four of the fragments were recovered along a ten kilometre line from Corston in Angus to Essendy in Perthshire. The largest weighed 9.9 kilograms (22 pounds). This is the fragment found at South Corston Farm near Coupar Angus. It weighs one kilogram (2 pounds). Although farm workers saw it fall, it was not found until four days later in a six-inch deep hole in the farmhouse lawn.
