I had heard they removed the piece of it prior to the burn. And it was a meteorite.....it had already hit ground in China in the 1500s. Meteors by definition fall through the sky leaving a flaming trail as the fall, but burn up prior to hitting the Earth. Meteorites hit, cause a crater, and depending upon their composition and the velocity of their fall either vaporize or leave a fragment or fragments of the original mass.
The Chixculub meteorite that fell at the end of the Cretaceous period of geologic time vaporized on impact, for example, while the meteorite that caused Meteor Crater in Arizona scattered fragments all over.
