But what? Vladimir Rubtsov gives a sober account of this extraordinary event, clearly debunking myths while emphasizing the unknowns.

Amazingly, the Tunguska impact went unexplored for 13 years, and perhaps this time lag allowed evidence to escape.

Rubtsov draws attention to strange lights seen in the sky for days before the impact, comparing them with similar observations in 1910 when Earth passed through Comet Halley’s tail.
