Meteorites in Tennessee

Every summer, folks in Tennessee stay up late to watch the Perseid meteor showers in mid August. Rural Tennessee offers open fields clear skies, and soft green grass. Its the prefect opportunity for a late night pallet, a couple of RCs and a MoonPie!

While you are looking up think about this …. Over 3 Million years ago, 3 massive meteorites hit Tennessee.

Flynn Creek Crater

( Cookeville, Tn.)

Is about 3.8 km in diameter and the surface of this crater is weathered and distorted. The rock layers of Flynn Creek Crater are folded, likely recording deformation along the margins and rim of the crater but it’s still an interesting site to explore.

How to get there:

The crater is located about 8 km south of Gainesboro and less than 20 miles from Tennessee Tech in Jackson County, Tennesee.

Howell Structure

(Middle Tennessee

North of Fayetteville at Howell)

The Howell Structure is considered a ring-like structure that features about 2.5 km in diameter; deformed and disturbed.

How to get there:

It is centered on the unincorporated village of Howell, in Lincoln County, Tennessee, USA, about 110 km SSE of Nashville, TN.

Wells Creek Basin

(Clarksville at Cumberland City)

The biggest one is nearly 1000 feet in diameter, weighing in excess of 100 million tons. About 95-320 million years ago, this crater in Tennessee was hit by either an atomic explosion or a comet that had huge force and impact. The rocks dip at a very great angle, and some places are nearly vertical.

How to get there:

Follow Cumberland City Highway / SR 149 South, just North of Cumberland City after crossing the Cumberland River; or the meteor crater’s edge can be seen from Highway 149 east of Erin.

You don’t have to move to the moon to live on the edge of the universe. I am sure that we can find you spot in the middle of nowhere with views of the Milky Way, the Big Dipper and the North Star.

People in Tennessee are the Funniest When the Weather’s Freaking Hot!

We all know that there’s something about the Tennessee heat and the way it makes everything slow down but there’s something about it that just speaks to us like nothing else.

The heatwave is no joke in Summer, but folks in Tennessee know just how to make it through. How? By describing the intensity of the heat in creative ways that’ll crack you up!

Here are some of our favorites:

  • It’s like a steam bath out here.
  • I’m sweatin’ like a hog.
  • It’s not the heat—it’s the humidity.
  • Crank up that A.C. till it’s blowing snowballs.

This one’s the funniest!

  • It’s so dang hot that I just saw a hound dog chasing a rabbit—and they were both walking.

Speaking of the devil…

  • Even Satan’s sweatin’ today.
  • Hotter than Satan’s house cat
  • Hot as the hinges on the gates of Hades

But guys, seriously.

Stay hydrated. Grab the fruity-flavored sorbet in your favorite store or just dunk yourself in a tub full of ice (just kidding!)
