    Campo-del-Ciel-meteorites, these iron meteorites, the first time in 1576 in what is now Argentina were discovered. A Spanish governor learned of reports of native Indians, according to which iron had fallen from the sky. He then sent an expedition that brought back several fragments. The site, a low-water level, bore the appropriate name Campo del Cielo (field of heaven). About 200 years later, the Spaniards sent another expedition, as suspected, was that some fragments contained silver. The reports of the Indians but they gave no credence because it was assumed that the origin of the metal is an iron mine. Here a Marine lieutenant was supposedly a fragment that he estimated at 15-18 tons. As the investigation of the material showed that it was only to iron, they let it back. The fragment was found in later expeditions again.
