See eyewitness reports and videos from the February 2017 fireball that sparked the Aquarius Project.

The Aquarius Project is no longer the only group to look for a meteorite in a massive body of water. Using a similar method, a NASA scientist recovered meteorite fragments from the ocean floor off the Washington coast.

Read about other extraordinary lengths people take to find meteorites -- like the explorer, fueled by reindeer milk, who trudged deep into Siberia to find the site of a monstrous meteor impact.

Meet the only person in recorded human history to be struck by a meteorite.

Also explore:

Almost all meteorites originate from our solar system. But scientists discovered one interstellar interloper that may have slammed into earth.

Nearly 50 tons of space debris hit Earth every day. Watch Meteor Showers 101.

Listen to the Adler Planetarium's podcast series chronicling the Aquarius Project.
