Caption: Extinction of the dinosaurs, artwork. The bone-headed dinosaur Pachycephalosaurus wyomingensis, from the late Cretaceous, is silhouetted against the light from the K-T asteroid that ended the Age of the Dinosaurs. This moment is shortly after the K-T asteroid became visible in the sky as a star. It has grown to a blinding incandescent fireball, moments before the catastrophic impact.
