Sulagiri meteorite fell in the Krishnagiri district of Tamil Nadu, India. The meteorite was fragmented at least once on the transit and led to multiple fall around a cluster of villages near Sulagiri, defining an elliptical shaped strewn field of 3 km along NW-SE direction and 1 km across. The size of the collected fragments increases from W to E. Seven pieces of the meteorite were collected , totalling ~110 kg, making Sulagiri, the largest meteorite fall so far in India. The largest fragment weighed 50 kg and made a crater of ~1.5 m on impact, on the main road.
