I have made up my mind that I am attending Tucson next year. I am more than
a little jealous, reading all these wonderful reports and seeing the photos.

Relevant to my subject line, I have just settled down with Roy Gallent's
book, "Meteorite Hunter: The Search for Siberian Meteorite Craters." In

similar event [to the Tunguska blast] occurred in the upper flows of the
Amazon River. Again, due to it's remoteness the event is known only to a
small circle of specialists."

I admit I have not read the rest of the book but does anyone know anything
about this supposed event? Is anyone here a member of the circle of
