DescriptionOn the afternoon of May 2, 1890, a large meteor exploded over Winnebago County. Sightings were reported as far away as South Dakota. The Forest City meteor, as it came to be known, showered an 8-square-mile area with meteorites, many of which are now displayed in museums across the country. The largest piece weighed 81 pounds.
