The Cataclysm

The second piece in my Younger Dryas project - My previous post before this one has more information.

A growing popular theory is that roughly 12800 years ago, one or several meteors struck the earth and ended the last ice age. One major meteor which melted the Laurentide ice sheet and caused biblical (literally) flooding in north america was 4 Kilometres in diameter.

I've also attached an animated version made by playing around on Pixaloop.

A meteor around 4 kilometres in diameter smashes into the earths crust.
