Falling in February 12, 1947 in the Sikhote-Alin mountains of Russia, the Sikhote-Alin meteorite came in burning as bright as the sun and leaving a trail of smoke behind that lasted for hours after. The iron meteorite was also the subject of a 1957 Soviet Union Postage Stamp, featuring a painting done by an artist who witnessed the meteor's fall.
