Meteorite Impact Map

A Fantastic Map of 500 Years of Meteorites Hitting Earth

from the site:

The interactive map is only a partial sampling of the 45,716 meteorites on record with the Meteoritical Society. "The vast majority of those are fragments found in Antarctica and other remote locations like Western Australia and the Sahara," he says. "Only about 1,107 have a recorded sighting associated with them and of those I was able to find pictures for 605. Since the map is intended for the public and not professionals, I chose to show only the 605 with the most information associated with them."
