Google's machine translation is a useful starting point for translations, but translators must revise errors as necessary and confirm that the translation is accurate, rather than simply copy-pasting machine-translated text into the English Wikipedia.

A meteorite felt in June 1821, on the 15th, whose name therefore became the Juvinas meteorite. It felt in the hamlet of Libonès, at a place called “le Cros du Libonès” (in French). It is a eucrite, coming from Vestaminor planet, the 4th asteroid by size from the main asteroid belt, between Jupiter and Mars. Half of the original recovered fall is still kept in the French national collection of meteorites at MNHN museum, in Paris, France. The remaining was kept in neighborhood family homes, but the lack of transmission of their origin through successive generations ended with the loss, by discarding, of most if not all of these therefore unidentified pieces.
