Here's NASA's offical site on NEO's -- Near Earth Objects -- such as comets and asteroids: http://neo.jpl.nasa.gov/ and here's a directory listing of other NEO sites, a few with some fairly dramatic (and imaginary) pictures of NEOs colliding with earth: http://groups.msn.com/AstronomySpace/nearearthobjectsneos.msnw Hope this meets your needs. Let me know if I can clarify anything here for you. pafalafa-ga search strategy: nasa asteroid collision
