Tunguska event site. Flattened trees 12 kilometres from the site of the Tunguska event. This is how the site was found when scientists reached it in 1927. The Tunguska event was a massive explosion that took place at 0717 on 30 June 1908, in Siberia, Russia. A fireball was observed low in the sky, moving north-west, followed by a series of loud knocking sounds and a shock wave that was felt hundreds of kilometres away. Expeditions to the area found immense damage, with over 3000 square kilometres of forest flattened. It is thought that the explosion was a meteorite or comet breaking up and exploding above the surface.
