Asteroid Impacts: 9 Biggest Known Hits

Most of the debris burns up when it enters our atmosphere, and all we get is the bright blaze in the clear night sky because, from time to time, we see it as fleeting meteor showers.

But sometimes a meteorite is tough enough to survive the atmosphere and large enough to leave a remarkable spot on our planet.

Nestled in the Colorado Plateau in northern Arizona, Barringer Crater is a rimmed pit in the shape of a bowl we also call Meteor Crater. South Africa has its own gem, too – Vredefort Crater, the largest and the oldest one in the world.

Let’s take a look at some impressive craters around the world.
