Dear List,

Seeing the "Today in History" headlines in several US newspapers, does anyone have any information about the-
1922 _ 12 MAY: A 20.3-tonne/20-ton meteorite lands in a field near Blackstone, Virginia, leaving a 46 sq m/500 sq ft hole in the ground.?


I have done some digging, but no library to dig. ?I have found that a large meteor was seen over North Carolina and Virginia on 11MAY1922 with reports of broken windows and earthquake.
