Meteor Crater Natural Landmark

Meteor Crater Natural Landmark, located near Flagstaff, Arizona, is an awe-inspiring testament to the power of nature and the impact of celestial bodies on our planet's surface. This massive crater, measuring nearly one mile in diameter and over 550 feet deep, was formed approximately 50,000 years ago when a meteorite collided with the Earth's surface at a speed of over 26,000 miles per hour. Today, visitors to Meteor Crater can explore its rim and marvel at the sheer size and scale of this geological wonder.
