Caption: Barringer Crater. Coloured map of the geological structure of this crater in Arizona, USA. It is also called Meteor Crater. The map shows that the rock structure of the impact object (blue) differs from the surroundings. The crater was formed over 50,000 years ago by the impact of an iron meteorite colliding with the Earth. The meteorite, a rock from space, is thought to have weighed more than 10,000 tonnes. The resulting crater is 183 metres deep, with a diameter of 1200 metres.
