The Campo del Cielo meteorite probably originated within the Asteroid Belt located between Mars and Jupiter.
The Campo Del Cielo meteorite was discovered and reported in 1576 by a Spanish military expedition exploring northern Argentina. (However, this meteorite's craters had been known and worshiped by aboriginal indians for hundreds of years before that.) Carbon dating of charred wood fragments ,taken from beneath the meteorite, indicated it fell to earth around 2,200 BC. The crater field is 2 miles wide by 12 miles long with 26 craters. These meteorites hit the earth's atmosphere traveling up to 150,000 miles per hour, landing in the Chaco province in northern Argentina.
