Taqtaq-e Rasoul: a new Iranian meteorite fall

Recently, we classified a new Iranian meteorite which fell on 10th of August this year.

Our geochemical and petrographic studies showed that it is an H5 chondrite. Taqtaq-e Rasoul is the fifth fall from Iran, three of them (with Famenin and Moshampa) classified by us!

Fall description and classification reports are now available in the Meteoritical Bulletin (https://www.lpi.usra.edu/meteor/metbull.php?code=70632)
