These extraordinary visitors-from-outer space travelled 238,900 miles from the surface of the moon and landed in Tindouf, Algeria. The fragments found are weathered and coated by pale reddish-brown material, acquired from their time spent on Earth’s surface. The fresh interiors of the largest fragments exhibit white to beige clasts in a dark gray, fine-grained matrix. Marvellous!
