On September 5, 1814 at 11:40 a.m., a meteorite shower fell on the town of Temple-sur-Lot, located about twenty km north of Agen, and in surrounding localities. Several reports were written and they related in some details the circumstances of the fall : a kind of cloud had appeared in the sky from which light streaks left. Then three or four explosions were heard followed by several others less violent, like a roll of thunder. The cloud having appeared to be divided into four or five parts, witnesses saw several large stones fall. Many stones likely fell but only four of those were well documented.
