Pieces of a carbonaceous chondrite were found on driveways from the fall on February 28th, one appears to have been rather delicate and turned to powder when it hit the concrete, surprising how it survived the atmosphere if it was that soft!

Those are lightweight meteorites  compared to the irons or stonies. No doubt it landed much softer than the others would have.

Here's another fall in France they are looking for. I don't like the odds on this one.

Wait - are you saying it fell softer due to its mass?  Galileo shames you!  :Just_Cuz_15:
