Serra Pelada Brazilian Meteorite First Amazonian Fall Brazil
The Serra Pelada meteorite is a rare type of meteorite which scientists believe must have come off one of the largest and brightest asteroids in the solar system, 4 Vesta. It was found in Curionópolis, in the state of the Pará, Brazil. Its fall was observed on June 29, 2017, by people in Eldorado dos Carajás, Marabá and Parauapebas.

This meteorite is a eucrite, a basaltic achondrite and a member of the howardite-eucrite-diogenite (HED) clan of meteorites which most likely are from the crust of the asteroid 4 Vesta.
