Astronomy Ireland believes meteorite fell in North West last week

Experts are looking for help in tracing a meteorite that was seen in the skies over Ireland last week.

Astronomy Ireland says it's almost certain that fragments of the fireball fell somewhere in the North West, probably in Sligo, but possibly in Donegal.

They're asking anyone who saw the meteor on the night of Monday week last to go to astronomy-dot-ie and report the sighting. They're particularly anxious to get any pictures from CCTV cameras.

Dave Moore is Chairperson of Astronomy Ireland. He says if they get the right information, they can tell people where fragments of the meteorite may be found...........
