Speculation

Named after the Siberian Tunguska meteoric air-bust event

Judging by the given measurements of the sides, the annie plants are at least 1.22 km in apparent diameter, even assuming that the visible portion on the top is one full hemisphere. It seems likely that they are much larger given the angle they are shown in the first appearance, but the annie plants do seem smaller from the bottom 2004-02-24.
