Artist Ron Miller illustrates what it might look like if an asteroid the size of the one that struck the Yucatan peninsula 65 million years ago, which left a 93-mile-wide crater and most likely triggered the extinction of the dinosaurs, hit New Jersey.
Poor Bayonne ...
I may be off base here, but it appears that for the shock wave to eject material that high into the stratosphere, the shockwave would already have obliterated the city in the foreground.

And that’s not the explosion from the asteroid. That’s just the hairspray cans blowing up!
Got me! I thought is would be a picture of Obama.

Wayne: What is it in some people that they want to depict the earth (and us along with it) going through hopeless, apocalyptic destruction?
I know that we are headed toward a Biblical apocalypse followed by the creation of a new heaven and new earth, but these scenarios seem to either be: 1) complete destruction, followed by a pristine earth no longer enduring horrible mankind, or, 2) we get a “semi-apocalyptic” destruction of earth and mankind followed by mankind finally getting the “truth” that we are just an evolutionary blip in the context of Mother Nature, so we’d better get in tune with her or we’re toast next time. Garth?
Garth: I think it’s just some cool pictures of crap blowing up.
That’s like, a half of a half of a nanosecond after impact. The impact plume will easily stretch outside the atmosphere.
What the “end looks like” Ping.
