Divers have found a celestial body fragment weighing a few tons in Tchebarkul Lake.

      The lake is still frozen-over. The place where the first large splinter was found is presently marked with an anchor buoy. It is about 16 meters deep there, with its bottom coated with a 4-meter layer of organic slime.

      At the last weekend experts managed to localize a new anomaly some dozens meters away from the anchor buoy. The found body is presumably no less than two meters large and weighs no less than a ton. Magnetometer survey and a sonar detection gear made it possible to size up the massive splinter. It is not going to be easy to salvage it: one will have to pump out multimeter bottom slime and use special equipment.

      The large meteorite splinter found at the bottom of Lake Tchebarkul on October 16, 2013, is now displayed in the regional museum of local lore.
