Umm al Binni crater

Umm al Binni crater

This is perhaps the site of a devastating meteor impact in the Middle East.
The catastrophic effect from which could explain the mystery of why so many early cultures went into sudden decline around 2300 BC.
Today's crater lies on what would have been shallow sea 4,000 years ago, and any impact would have caused devastating fires and flooding.
The near circular, ~3.4 km-d...

Sirente crater

Sirente crater

The Sirente crater field of more than 20 extremely well preserved structures was discovered during the late 1990s and was originally though to be due to a very recent meteoritic impact (about 1500 years ago).
However, further investigations now points to it being a water reservoir for human pastoral activity. Another plausible alternative is that it is periglacial feature (i.e. Pingo).

Mjolnir Impact Crater

Mjolnir Crater is a recently discovered ringed structure about 24 miles wide on the floor of the Barents Sea. It is the result of the impact, roughly 142.0 ± 2.6 million years ago (Lower Cretaceous), of a 1 -3 Km wide asteroid-like body.
Estimates indicate that the energy released in the impact could have been as high as a million megatons of TNT, resulting in immense (7.7 to 8.7 magn...

Azuara Crater

Azuara Crater

The 35-40-km diameter Azuara impact structure is located in northeast Spain roughly 50 km south of Zaragoza. Its age is estimated to be Upper Eocene or Oligocene, though ages of 130 and 40 Million years have been offered. It is possible that Azuara and the close by Rubiela de la Cérida impact craters formed during the same event.
