Joe D’Augustine spotted in the 1947 Project the following account of flying space rock in Edendale. The year is 1907.
An asteroid nearly reached the open field near the home of Joseph Phillis, at the corner of McCullom and Berkeley early this morning. It exploded just before impact, leaving a burned patch twelve feet in diameter. The neighborhood was filled with heavy sulphurous smoke, in the center of which burned a dim blue flame.
Surrounding homes were rocked by the loud explosion and lit up by a Fourth of July spectacular, but the only extant remains of our spacejectile the shaken denizens could find were chunks of meteorite that resembled volcanic rock.
Otherwise neighbors, and dinosaurs, were not affected.
I believe "McCollum" is actually "McCollum." Maybe it evolved. And some think of this part of Edendale as Silver Lake now. But that could be a matter of opinion.
