<p>Ensisheim meteor fall. Woodcut showing the fall of a meteorite in 1492 near the villages of Ensisheim and Battenheim (both labelled), then in Germany (German text across top), now in the Alsace region of north-eastern France. This is the oldest meteorite whose fall can be dated precisely, to noon on 7 November 1492. The arrival of the meteorite from above (upper right) was preceded by a loud explosion followed by an impact that formed a 1-metre deep crater in a wheat field (bottom). The remains of the meteorite were later put on display in the main hall of Ensisheim's 16th-century Regency Palace. The castle (left) was built in the 13th century.</p>
