Sikhote-Alin is the largest meteorite fall of our time. The strewnfield associated with this fall is over 6 km long and occured deep in the Taiga with more than 106 impact holes up to 28 meters in diameter. The area looked like it had been bombed; trees were ripped apart, deep holes gouged and giant scraps of metal were strewn about. The largest specimen recorded was 1,745 kg. We visited the site in 2000 and the initial strewnfield was explanded to >10 km.
