THE STORY OF METEORITE CSATALJA:
The meteorite was found in August 2012, near to Csatalja village, South-Hungary while farm work, when out the stone while plowing a tractor. The area is under agricultural cultivation.Two of the three years the farmer doing deep plowing, when the plow go down 0.5 meters as well. Probably one of those deep plowing up the surface of the meteorite and found it so in 2012. The find location was some km E of the village of Csátalja at 46.006° N, 18.991° E. Finder: Karoly Kiss tractor driver. Spar week after the land-owner left to the Astronomical Observatory, Baja to director of Observatory, Dr. Hegedus. He sent a sample was further analyzed in University of Bratislava Dr. Juraj Toth and Dr. Szaniszló Bérczi of University of Eötvös Lóránd, Budapest. Soon after, alarmed by Dr. Toth that this is real chondrite meteorite with about 15.8 kg TKW.
Later, a small piece Dr. Hegedus sent to the University of Pecs further analization. They examined the piece and made thin section and X-ray diffraction measurements.
The meteorite is a
H4, S2, W1 chondrite (based on thin section and SEM examination by Prof Anthony Irving, University of Washington).
We hope you'll have the results within a period of one months and soon will be published in the MetBull 103. This will be is the
13th hungarian meteorite (4 from these is doubtfull historic). The main mass currently is in Astronomical Observatory, Baja and in the hungarian NHM. Recently the found area has closed for any meteorite-finders and any persons because there is an archaeological site is licensed only for researchers.

Physical characteristics: A single brown, roughly equidimensional stone originally weighing ~15.8 kg.
Comments: Rich in Fe-Ni grains inside, in some places unexpectedly large ones. Outer surface has many weather-degraded regmaglypts.
Petrography: (A. Irving and S. Kuehner, UWS) The specimen consists of sparse relatively small (0.4-2.1 mm) chondrules and partial chondrules in a finer grained, recrystallized matrix rich in stained metal. Primary minerals are olivine, orthopyroxene, clinopyroxene, sodic plagioclase, chromite, merrillite, chlorapatite, troilite and kamacite (partially altered to iron hydroxides)
Geochemistry: Olivine (Fa18.6-19.9), orthopyroxene (Fs15.8-16.3Wo1.1-1.2), clinopyroxene (Fs5.7-5.8Wo45.6-46.4).
Classification: Ordinary chondrite, H4 (S2). Weathering grade is W1 by Prof. Irving.
Further analizations: Recently a team with leading Dr. Ákos Keresztúri in University of Eötvös Lóránd, Budapest is analizing  5 pcs Thin Sections of Csátalja H4-5 chondrite by polarizing-microscope, SEM and microprobe. He has found many shocked and weathering altered zones.  Some parts of meteorite are heavy oxidized (limonite, hamatite?), heavy shocked (stage 4!) and fractured with many shocked and filled by oxids veins.
An other team of University of Pécs is anailizing the samples also. The holder of Main Mass (BajaAO) going to make CRE analisys soon is ATOMKI, Debrcen, Hungary. The studies soon will be publish in Conferences, Workshops and in meteoritics related Scientific Journals.
