Vigarano fell at 9:30 pm 22 January 1910
in Emilia, Italy. Two stones of 11.5 kg and 4.5 kg were found.
the type specimen for the CV class.
A case can be made for Vigarano being the oldest meteorite. Although older
ages have been recorded for other meteorites they are isolated measurements and
do not give as consistently an old age as does Vigarano.
