The Uden meteorite (LL7, see explanation) impacted on 12 june 1840 and currently weighs 710 grams. Peat farmers saw how this meteorite nearby on a dirt road not far from the villages of Volkel and Uden. After some deliberation, they pulled a heptagonal stone out of the ground with a shovel. One of the workmen took the stone home. However, the stone was handled roughly; a piece broke off that was lost. The secretary of the nearby municipality of Zeeland started an investigation, heard the witnesses and published his findings. He also brought the stone to safety and presented it to the Governor of North Brabant. He donated the stone ‘for the benefit of science’ to the Provincial Society in North Brabant, which later became the Brabant Museum. He described the acquisition as an ‘aerolite; meteor or air stone, which fell from the sky on 12 June 1840 at Uden’. This meteorite is currently part of the collection at the Brabant Museum.
