Caption: Barringer Crater. View across Barringer, or Meteor, Crater in Arizona, USA. The rock in the foreground shows unusual surface patterns caused by shock melting due to the heat produced by the impact. Barringer Crater is about 170 metres deep and 1200 metres across. It was formed by an iron meteorite which collided with Earth some 50,000 years ago.
