Two pieces, weighing about 550 g each, both originating from the same piece, were found at Rodeløkka on 12 March 2012. Some days later, a 700 g piece and a 26 g piece were both found on Ekebergsletta nearby. A third find was also done near the Ekeberg kindergarten of a 170 g piece.


A further, but unofficial find of 2 other pieces weighing 115 g and 4.65 kg respectively, at Grefsen, were also reported in the media, but these have not been available for scientific investigations for verifications (Bilet & Selbekk 2013).

The Oslo meteorite probably fell around 9-10 March 2013.

Classification: H3-6 (a chondrite).
