As an example, one of the most well-known and best preserved craters is Barringer crater in Arizona , which is just over 1km in diameter, and was created by a nickle-iron meteor, which was about 50m (54yards).

This is a minuscule size compared to the large craters of the world, . They say they are really distinctive from space too.. And that pretty much been true..
