The title of his talk will be "The Mesozoic Extinction". For this month's Collector's Corner you are invited to bring in your Mesozoic/Cretaceous Fossils for showing others and sharing information. The Public is Welcome!!!
Debris, including micro glass "beads" from melted earth ejected into the air, from the KT boundary burn layer. Garfield county, Montana, Hell Creek formation. Late cretaceous (duh) *i added "misc." to this album because this didn't fit anywhere, and I thought it was really cool and should definitely be included somewhere. **There could even be vaporized dinosaur material as part of the glass and melted debris included. There definitely was plenty of it, but I guess realistically, unless it became evenly spread into the atmosphere and airborne debris, this is too small an amount of ejecta, and by percentage such a minuscule amount of vaporized dino, so sadly there probably isn't any.

Found 8 Aug 2013. An extremely rare starfisht, it was 1 of less than 10 complete specimens ever found at that time. It was found in the sand layer of the Rocky Point member of the PeeDee. This layer contains abundant Flemingostrea subspatulata among other oysters along with Hardouinia mortonis and kellumi echinoids. This starfish was invertebrate fossil of the month in 08/2013.
