And for those of you who don’t know, Peekskill does, in fact, have a yellow brick road! For realz! Controversy surrounds whether it had anything to do with the Wizard of Oz, but the author, Frank Baum, did attend Peekskill Military Academy before writing the Oz stories.
The Peekskill meteorite is among the most historic meteorite events on record. Sixteen separate video recordings document the meteorite burning through the Earth’s atmosphere, whereupon it struck a parked car in Peekskill, New York. Peekskill is an H6 monomict breccia; its filigreedtexture is the result of the shocking and heating following the impact of two asteroids in outer space. The meteorite is of the stony variety and approximately 20% of its mass is tiny flakes of nickel-iron. When it struck Earth, the meteorite weighed 26 pounds (12 kg) and measured one foot in diameter. The Peekskill meteorite is estimated to be 4.4 billion years old.The meteorite fell on October 9, 1992 – an event witnessed by thousands across the East Coast.
The meteorite fell on October 9, 1992 – an event witnessed by thousands across the East Coast. Numerous residents of Pittsburgh, Philadelphia and Washington D.C.described the “huge greenish fireball.” The meteorite broke up over Kentucky and passed over West Virginiaand Pennsylvania on its north-northeast trajectory before striking a parked 1980 red Chevy Malibu [see photo below] at approximately 7:50 pm EDT. After traveling through space at a cosmic velocity of 8.8 miles per second, the speed of the meteorite at impact had slowed to 164 miles per hour.
Take it away, Wikipedia: “Eighteen-year old Michelle Knapp, the car’s owner, heard the collision from inside her home. She later described the sound as “like a three-car crash”. Hurrying outside to investigate the noise, Knapp found her car smashed and the 26-pound meteorite, still warm and smelling of sulfur, beneath it.” Photo of Knapp and her meteored Chevy Malibu by John Bortle.
