Millbillillie

Over 330 kg (727 lbs) of this eucrite (achondrite) fell in a shower of stones over Millbillillie and Jundee Stations, Wiluna district, Western Australia, in October of 1960.

Amazingly, despite the fall being observed by station workers, the first of these meteorites was not collected until 1970.

Eucrites are the most common type of achondrite meteorite falls (vs. finds) and are believed to have formed from the cooling of magma on the surface of the Asteroid 4-Vesta.
