Château-Renard is an ordinary (L6) chondrite that fell near Montargis, in Loiret, France June 12, 1841. The meteorite’s fall was published in the American Journal of Science and Arts, Volume 42, as reported in the New York Observer on August 14, 1841. Galignani’s Messenger mentions that at a late session of the French Academy, a communication was received from M. Delavaux, stating that on the 12th of June, (1841), between one and two o’clock in the afternoon, the sky being without a cloud, an explosion was heard at Château-Renard, in the department of Loiret, louder than several pieces of artillery firing together. He suspected that this must have proceeded from an aerolite; and on going to the spot where the noise had been loudest, found there the marks where the aerolite had struck the earth, as well as several fragments of such a body, lying about.
