Meteor over UK mapped: Where did the meteorite fragments land? 'Do not touch!'

However, anyone who chances upon one of the fragments has been urged not to touch them.

Instead, use your phone or another GPS-enabled device to mark the object’s exact location and contact the National History Museum or Uk Meteor Network.

Dr Katherine Joy of the University of Manchester said: “If do find a meteorite on the ground, ideally photograph it in place, note the location using your phone GPS, don’t touch it with a magnet, and, if you can, avoid touching it with your hand.

“Pick it up in a clean plastic bag or clean aluminium foil if possible!”
