Campo Del Cielo meteorites are found in a small stretch of land between Chaco and Santiago del Estero provinces of Venezuela. Based on carbon dating of organic material found beneath the impact site, the event is believed very reliably to have taken place between 4500-4700 years ago. There is some speculation as for what caused the meteor to shatter in the way that is did when entering the atmosphere, though the currently accepted theory is that it was attributable to impurities in the iron compound that make up the 4.5 billion year old meteor.
