I heard on NPR that it was 50ft wide.

Must be a liberal conspiracy.

*edit: just researched to confirm. it was 50 feet wide and weighed about 10 tons. way to go, cnn.

Any idea if that's the size of the meteorite when it first entered the atmosphere or when it impacted? Because I'm pretty sure something 10 tons wouldn't create such a small crater in lake.
