8 impact sites are known at present. They form an strewn field with a diameter of less than 1.9 km. The reported combined TKW collected at all sites at present is given with 50-60kg according to media reports and locals, however, the GSI later reported a TKW of 110 kg. At the time of this Report, at least two masses that were seen impacting had not been recovered due to terrain conditions (3 and 8). It is possible, that these meteorites were recovered later and added to the total yield. The strewn field map shown gives the respective impact sites with the numbers assigned as described above. The lines indicate the approximate flight paths, assuming medium winds from north-easterly direction at altitudes above 12,000 meters and little to no wind below. According to eye witnesses, the bolide first appeared at an azimuth of 280° and was heading in east-southeasternly direction with a bearing of 120°. (note that Initial reports indicating a north-easternly origin of the bolide were proven wrong).
The mass distribution confirms the characteristic distribution pattern expected for a NW to SE trajectory. The largest known mass, which is the Attakuruki mass with ~30kg, has continued furthest downrange and landed at the easternmost end of the strewnfield.
According to eye witnesses, the blazing fireball was seen up to a distance of at least 15 km east and northeast and up to a distance of 12 km south of the fall area. The bolide appeared at an azimuth of 280° -270° and was decending in a low angle with great speed. It lasted for 10-15 seconds. Detonations were heard in Hosur, which is 15 km west of Kammandadody and in Krishnagiri, which is 35 km southeast from the fall area.
