|This lake is a flooded meteorite crater in Ghana, approximately 8km across. The impact crater is estimated to be 1.3 million years old. The lake is considered to be sacred by the 'Ashanti', where their dead go to farewell their god Twi.||08/04/2005||1,681|
|This crater is located inside Virunga National Park, in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. The main crater is about two km (6,562 ft.) wide and usually contains a lava lake. The crater presently has two distinct cooled lava benches within the crater walls - one at about 3175m (10,400 ft) and a lower one at about 2975m (9,800 ft).||04/03/2011||878|

|Darwin Crater was discovered in 1972 by Ramsay J. Ford. The crater lies 26 km south of Queenstown Tasmania.|
The crater was formed by a 20 - 50 m diameter asteroid that struck the Earth approximately 730,000 +/- 40,000 years ago.
The crater has a diameter of 1.2km and is 230 metres deep. It was a lake until about 30 000 years ago, today it is filled with sediment. The crater is ass...
|This aerial view looks west over the 250-meter-deep circular lake that fills the New Quebec Crater, a relatively large, well-preserved crater. The interior topography of the crater is covered by lake sediments that inhibit a determination of whether the structure has a small central uplift. The rocks involved in this impact event are ancient and strongly deformed gneisses of the Precambrian shi...||08/12/2005||1,639|

Lake Jiaming is a meteor crater in Taiwan. The elevation is 3610m. Nowadays Lake Jiaming becomes a beautiful lake named as a " The God's tear ".
|The Silverpit crater in the North Sea was discovered in 2002 during a seismic oil exploration .|
The crater is about 2.4 km wide and surrounded by a set of concentric rings, which extend to about 10 km away from its centre.
Its age is thought to be about 65 million years old, roughly coincident with the formation of the Chicxulub Crater.
The crater currently lies below a ...
|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).
