The Tunguska Incident

The Tunguska event was a massive, mysterious explosion that occured on June 8th, 1908 in a remote part of Russia. It manifested itself as at first a column of bluish light, then as a bright flash of light which locals described as a "second sun" (wow.). A force was then felt which knocked people off their feet.

It's awesome to think what could have caused this. Many theories exist. The most common is that a meteor caused it, either by direct collision, or by passing very close to the surface of the earth. Locals in nearby villagers thought it was the "end of the world". Other theories point to black holes, and possibly extraterrestrial craft.

The point of this story, is that mysterious events rule. Its totally rad to think about what caused them and what actually happened.
