Question: I have two questions: 1) What landmass did the asteroid land on? 2) Why didn't the asteroid's bright flash blind everyone because it exploded like a nuclear bomb?

Continuity mistake: When Aladar is trying to help Eema get up, his eyes turn blue in one shot and in the next, they turn back to the usual green. The same thing happens at the end of the movie, when Aladar's baby hatches out of the egg.

Trivia: The film was originally conceived by filmmaker Paul Verhoeven and effects artist Phil Tippet while they were working on "RoboCop." They envisioned the film as a stop-motion feature that'd be more like a nature-documentary than a traditional narrative. It would have be darker, more violent and more realistic, and would end with the extinction of the dinosaurs after an asteroid hits Earth. Eventually, they left the project, and it was re-written as a more benevolent, family-friendly movie.
