Manish Mamatani posted this photo to EarthSky Facebook. It’s wonderful Meteor Crater near Winslow, Arizona, sometimes said to be the best preserved meteorite impact site in the world. It is an impressive thing to see … worth taking the kids!
The mile-wide crater is the result of a collision between Earth and an asteroid, believed to have occurred only about 50,000 years ago.
Thank you, Manish!
