Makes it easy to believe that a meteor is what took out the dinosaurs.

That sonic boom would have freaked me out for sure. Crazy how delayed it was.

HIGHLY doubt it. That big meteor would probably have wiped out the whole city.

And it was still a mere footnote on the news this morning. Important things like the cruise ship 'tragedy' need to be focused on.

What's with this talk of it being the size of a dining room table?

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.

There's video of the crater, but none of it actually crashing down. It crashed in some frozen lake away from any cameras.
