Meteorite Source

South East of Dakhla; located in the Western Sahara Desert, Morocco. Latitude and longitude coordinates for Dakhla are: 30°24'38.56"N, 9°33'20.59"W.

Meteorites were found in this area between Imlili, Aousserd and Tichla.

We visited Morocco in 2017 and visited areas where meteorites were found, but they were extremely difficult to find. In several hours we only found one small meteorite. Two images enclosed when we went fossicking for meteorites.
