"….for example, we're in a village where there were
reports yesterday that people had found small black
pebbles in the snow.

And these were holes coated in ice, like an upside
down icicle. And if you dig down into these holes
you find a small black pebble. And they've found
thousands of these in this village. Women would
take them out in their kitchens and show you a
handful. And now it seems that these are, in fact,
meteor shards."
