My anthology in progress is centered around the Sylacauga meteor event outside of Oak Grove, Alabama in 1954. The fireball was seen from 3 states, eventually crashing through the roof of the Hodges house at 12:46pm local time.
The wound inflicted on Ann Hodges by the Sylacauga Meteorite as she napped on her couch. She is the only person in recorded history to be hit by one. (Jay Leviton/The LIFE Images Collection via Getty Images/Getty Images)
