ancient meteor strike triggered eruptions lasting up to a million years


a giant meteor impact on earth nearly 2 billion years ago triggered more explosive and long-lived volcanic eruptions than previously thought, a new study finds. this finding sheds light on how meteor bombardment may have dramatically shaped the evolution of the early earth, researchers in the new study said. meteor strikes have left giant craters all over earth. for instance, the cosmic impact that scientists think ended the age of dinosaurs about 66 million years ago left behind a crater more than 110 miles (180 kilometers) wide near the town of chicxulub (cheek-sheh-loob) in mexico.

autumn brings longer and darker nights for skywatchers, as well as a bonus: an upswing in meteors, the bright and transitory trails of tiny particles that burn up as they plunge into earth's atmosphere at tremendous speed. between late september and early january every year, earth's orbit carries us through a series of debris fields left by passing comets, producing meteor showers for skywatchers to enjoy. it all kicks off this weekend with the peak of the orionid meteor shower. every shower has unique characteristics — some are stronger than others, some include fireballs, and others feature long, persistent trails. while the showers recur every year, moonlight can make or break a meteor shower for skywatchers. finding the ideal viewing location, and knowing where and when to look, will i
