During the summer months July and August 2010 a team of several enthusiastic people spent their time with searching for meteorites from the fall in Kosice on 28th February 2010 which might not had been found yet.
The meteorite chose a quite attractive place for landing. The strewn field is located in a forest with old trees on the foothills of the mountain range Karavanke. It is a dense wood partly with overturned trees, sometimes interrupted by fair clearances and colorful flowers at the edges, which reminds at times of a nature reserve.

Kosice 48°45.82'N, 21°10.58'E
Kosice Region, Slovakia
Fell: 2010 Feb 28, 22:24:46 UT
Classification: Ordinary chondrite (H5)
History: On February 28, 2010, at 22:24:46 UT a bright fireball appeared over central-eastern Slovakia. The cloudy and rainy weather prevented images been taken by the European Fireball Network or the Slovak Video Network. However, the fireball flash was recorded at six Czech and one Austrian fireball stations (P. Spurny, CzAS). The bolide reached at least -18 maximum brightness. Sonic booms were recorded at seven seismic stations in Slovakia, Hungary, and Poland (P. Kalenda, CzASO). The fall area was computed on the basis of two records of the surveillance cameras operating in Hungary (A. Igaz, HAA) by J. Borovicka (CzAS). The first meteorite (27.2 g) was found March 20 by J. Toth (CUB) to the northwest of the city of Koice (eastern Slovakia). Pieces were found by teams led by the Faculty of the Mathematics, Physics and Informatics, CUB and SAS. The largest stone weighs 2.2 kg. The finders include Juraj Toth, Diana Buzova, Marek Husarik, Tereza Krejcova, Jan Svoren, Julo Koza, David Capek, Pavel Spurny, Stanislav Kaniansky, Eva Schunova Marcel Skreka, Dusan Tomko, Pavol Zigo, Miroslav Seben, Jiri Silha, Leonard Kornos, Marcela Bodnarova, Peter Veres, Jozef Nedoroscik, Zuzana Mimovicova, Zuzana Krisandova, Jaromir Petrzala, Stefan Gajdos, Tomas Dobrovodsky, Peter Delincak, Zdenko Bartos, Ales Kucera, Jozef Vilagi.
Physical characteristics: Seventy-seven black stones with a thin fusion crust with the total weight 4.3 kg in the range of 0.5 g to 2.2 kg.

Special features on a frozen-melted small lake at Kuntapolca. Might this be excluded, this meteorite debris after the explosion of 2010.02.28 Kassa/Cassovia/Kosice Meteorite?

Meteorite "Kosice", the fall in Slovakia

On February 28th at 22:24:46 UT a bright bolide enlightened the night sky over the Central Europe. Despite the late hour bunch of people were watching Olympics ice hockey finals on TV and eye witnessed astonishing celestial spectacle. The glare of the bolide illuminated streets and interior of apartments, at some places in Eastern Slovakia cannon-like burst or series of low frequency blasts were heard. Due to the bad weather, cloudy skies and scatter showers the Central European Fireball Network (operated by dr. Pavel Spurny of  the Czech Academy of Sciences) did not take direct optical records of the bolide and Slovak Video Network (operated by dr. Juraj Toth of Comenius University in Bratislava) did not operate that night so that at first moment it seemed that there are no scientific records of this event.
