Re: [meteorite-list]Tunguska Blast a water rich comet: clusters of similar
craters, very like Carolina Bays, in New Mexico, east of Las Vegas and
southeast of Estancia: Rich Murray 2009.06.25

About 8 miles SE of Las Vegas, NM, via Google Maps and Google Earth, note
McAllister Lake, Crane Lake, and others with white deposits, by road 201, S
of SR 104, part of a Federal bird park.

Also, 20 miles E along State Road 104, then NE 1 mile on CR C 53A, to note a
NS crater about a mile long, with a about 100 m shallow white rock road
quarry at the S end right at the N edge of the road, with no fences or
livestock or No Trespassing signs -- it is easy to walk along the west edge
on the red sandstone bedrock and find that the layers are progressively
cracked and blasted over as refrigerator size chunks, with apparent dark
high temperature glazing, beside the shallow central depression. There are
rocks and chunks of the red sandstone up to 1 m size lying about in the
fields for miles, as well as many more similar features in the area.

SE of Albuquerque, just SE of Estancia, mostly N of 60 and the railroad, and
crossing it, is a NS cluster of shallow craters with white minerals,
Laguna Del Perro, and similar craters within 10-20 miles, long interpreted
as late Pleistocene wind erosion features -- intermittent playa lakes.

These features seem very similar to the million or so Carolina Bays, from
Maryland to Louisiana, for which a recent paper by experts claims evidence
to be from a huge ice dominant comet that fragmented high over Southern
Canada in 12,900 BP, causing the demise of Clovis culture and of large

I would like help in getting my rock samples from New Mexico features
