Abstract: The author reexamined the circumstances of the meteorite-shower of Kňahiňa (1866). He established that after the meteoric explosions the balance of the meteoric bodies becomes disarranged. In such cases the meteoric body's masse didn't to fill the wholly area of the enveloping ellipse, but only the area of the direction line. In case of the Kňahiňa in the western third part of the ellipse area, no fragment of an essential size has been recovered.
