Tunguska 100th

On the morning of June 30, 1908, in a remote region of Russian Siberia, the sky caught fire, the ground shook from several explosions, and 3000 square kilometres of forest were flattened as if by a giant foot. Eyewitnesses spoke of a bright object in the sky - so bright it was impossible to look at – which turned into a cloud of black smoke before the ground shook and flames shot into the air. The ‘Tunguska event’, as it was known, broke windows hundreds of kilometres away and caused the night sky to glow so brightly that people could read newspapers well after sunset. Yet there was little scientific interest at the time.
