Meteor Crater

50,000 years ago, a meteor estimated to be 150 feet across and weighing several hundred thousand tons hit the earth west of Winslow, AZ at about 26,000 miles per hour.  What was left was a crater 700 feet deep and over 4,000 feet across.

Here's a photo from 1986 at the same crater.  It's good to see that I have not changed much. <grin>
