Antarctic meteorites Meteorite finds from ablation zones on Antarctic glaciers, which represent about 25% of all the meteorites so far discovered. They vary in composition but are usually quite fresh and may have fallen from one million years ago to the present day. They are therefore of great importance in the study of meteorites. Antarctic meteorites include the first meteorites known to have been derived from the Moon and Mars.
