1884 - An Aerolite Falls in Canada

News
Quebec, P. Q., Dec. 16, 1884. - An aerolite fell on the farm of C. Francois, at Chateau Richer, below Montmorency Falls, a short distance from Quebec, at three o'clock Saturday morning. It was dug up from the ground, in which it had imbedded itself, and was found to measure about a foot in diameter. The people at Chateau Richer were so startled by the intense light that many rushed out of their houses to ascertain its cause. They say that the falling meteor presented the appearance of a huge ball of fire, which lighted up the whole countryside almost with the brilliancy of the noonday sun.
