I find it hard to believe this 66 ton meteorite just floated down to earth and laid itself gently on the ground without producing a crater. I think most likely it slammed into earth and through some geological process over time, found it itself on the surface.

The other thing regarding the article is it states "Virtually every day, Earth is bombarded with some 100 pounds of meteoric material." 

The amount of meteortic materials that bombards the earth daily is in the tons, not pounds.
