Meteorite fragments of asteroid 2024 BX1 recovered nearby Berlin are aubrites

On January 21st, 2024, a small (meter-sized) asteroid now designated 2024 BX1 and detected while still in space entered the Earth’s atmosphere near Berlin (Germany). Fragments of the corresponding meteorite have now been found and determined (by Peter Jenniskens and team) to belong to the rare group of aubrites (enstatite achondrites). This meteorite will certainly have an associated orbit and will be added to the list as soon as both its name (from the MetBull DB) and orbit are officially announced.
