Octahedrite coarse grain IIICD or IAB group showing strong reheating effects. Eight associated impact craters are estimated to be about 3500-5000 years old. The meteorite was first discovered in 1914. In 2006, a 164 kg was found. In 2012 a 262 kg fragment was recovered. Many meteorites from outside the preserve have also been found.
Morasko represents the largest meteorite shower in Central Europe.
The Morasko meteorite nature reserve can be visited.
