ASTEROID = The Global Extinction of the DINOSAURS ~65 MYA
Played to "FIRE in The SKY" by the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band!

CRETACEOUS ASTEROID EXTINCTION SUMMARY: This color sketch represents a Late
CRETACEOUS PERIOD asteroid -- perhaps as much as 6 MILES wide -- beginning to
heat up as it first enters Earth's atmosphere at an altitude of some 300,000 to
400,000 feet.  Approaching the southern Caribbean from the southeast at a
shallow, 30 degree angle to Earth's surface, the asteroid is only a few seconds
from direct impact in this illustration.
