Impact

Rock formation, Sandia Peak, ABQ, NM

My brother—who knows his geology—could probably tell you what printed this stony asterisk high in the Sandias. Although it looks to me like the splintering of rock caused by a micrometeorite impact, it was probably the result of some completely different physical process. Still, I’d never seen anything like it before (and there was a second exemplar that looked nearly identical a few feet away).

All I can say is, be careful looking for the footnote! It’s a long, steep slide to the bottom.
