Hitting 37 miles east of Flagstaff, Arizona, the Meteor Crater is an impact depression about a mile wide, about 2.4 miles around and 550 feet deep. This natural wonder was created 50,000 year ago when a meteor hit the earth travelling at 26,000 miles per hour. It became a National Natural Landmark in 1967, has an RV Park about 1/4 mile from the site and is open year-round. The Meteor Crater Visitor Center situated on the north edge has guided rim tours, a big screen movie theater, information and displays about meteors, comets, space, space rocks and our planetary system. For more information you can visit the site's official website Meteor Crater.
