Remnants of the 10-tonne space rock that lit up the prairie skies last week have been found near Lloydminster.

University of Calgary researchers announced Friday morning that planetary scientist Dr. Alan Hildebrand and graduate student Ellen Milley "located several fragments of meteorite Thursday afternoon and are conducting a search of the area to collect some of the estimated thousands of meteorite fragments densely strewn over an estimated 20-square-kilometre area near the Battle River."

Witnesses from across Saskatchewan and Alberta saw the fireball on Nov. 20 in a brief but spectacular display.
