After several loud detonations, approximately 16,000 mostly pea-sized stones fell onto the flood plain near Holbrook, Arizona, roughly in line with the Sante Fe railroad tracks.

On July 19, 1912, the quiet of Holbrook, Arizona was interrupted at approximately 6:30 p.m. to 6:40 p.m. local time, by a series of loud booming sounds followed by several explosions in rapid succession. The entire explosive event lasted for about one half to perhaps one minute. As a few Holbrook residents looked to the sky, there was too much daylight to see the bright light of the meteor. From the explosive sounds, the meteor passed in a due east path over the town and it was actually seen by one witness to explode about a mile or two in the air and it is now estimated that about 14,000 - 16,000 pea sized extraterrestrial stones pelted the ground around the section house located at the Aztec Rail Yard, six miles east of Holbrook.
