In the afternoon of July 23, 1872, a very loud bang was heard near Tours. At 5.20 pm, an inhabitant of Ile-Bouchard saw passing above him a burning bolide. The meteor seemed to separate into two burning bodies. In fact, many meteorites fell and were discovered : At Lancé, around Authon and around Prunay.
