Aachen
Nordrhein-Westfalen, Germany
Date of fall or find unknown
Ordinary chondrite (L5, S3)
A stony meteorite (weight 21 g, partly covered by fusion crust) labeled "Meteorite, fell near Aachen" is on display in the Lippesches Landesmuseum, Detmold. No further circumstances of find or fall are known. A comparison of the handwriting on the label with other labels suggests that the meteorite came into the museum collection around 1880.
