RALU Meeting – “The Sudbury Meteorite Impact”, Tuesday January 11th, 55+ Centre, 7.00pm.
The Sudbury Meteorite Impact and its Traces in Thunder Bay.
A presentation by Dr. Steve Kissin, LU research geologist, February 11th, 7.00pm at the 55+ Centre, River St.
The Sudbury Meteorite crater is the second largest in the world and taking place 1.85 billion years ago, one of the oldest. A fireball swept across Thunder Bay, some 700km away from the impact, followed by a rain of airborne debris, a violent air blast and finally a tsunami of a scale not seen in present history. The evidence lies under our feet across the city.
