The Bokuslavka iron meteorite fell in the Primorski Region, Siberia, at 11:47 am. local time (Harbin) on October 18, 1916. The population observed the usual sound and light phenomena and two masses fell 5 km north of the small village Boguslavka, 160 km north of Vladivostok. The larger mass was 198.6 kg and the smaller mass was 58.1 kg. Some eyewitnesses claimed that a third fragment fell but was never found. Bokuslavka is the second largest iron meteorite seen to fall, the largest, Sikhote Alin, fell in the same region in 1947.
