The Cali meteorite fall occurred on 6 July 2007 at 21h33m 1m UTC. Some specimens were recovered just after their fall so they are extremely fresh materials. Mineral analysis and bulk chemistry revealed that the measured abundances for most elements closely match the values recorded for other ordinary chondrites classified as H/L. We present here thermoluminescence studies of this recently fallen meteorite in order to get additional information on the radiation environment, and the thermal
