Karoonda meteorite commemorative plaque
Adelaide residents reported a huge ball of fire with a flaming tail shooting across the eastern sky. Some reported that the colour of the flames changed from brilliant red, to pale blue to sickly yellow. Witnesses closer to Karoonda reported that a loud detonation followed by a low rumbling like thunder was heard shortly after the meteorite passed overhead. The meteorite was eventually found nearly a month later by Professor Kerr Grant who collected information from locals and then searched an area of radius 3 miles (5 km). The remains of the object were found about 2 feet (0.6 m) underground, in a crater about 2 feet (0.6 m) in diameter.
