Meteor Crater, USA

 Meteor Crater is a crater of 50 meters which are formed due to the fall of meteorites, and meteors contain a lot of nickel. It is located about 43 miles (69 km) east of Flagstaff, near Winslow in the northern Arizona desert of the United States.
The place was called Meteor Crater, because it was close to the post office name. Meteor Crater is reportedly formed since 50,000 years ago in the Pleistocene period when the local climate became cooler and wetter. At that time there was a vast grassland and forests, inhabited by woolly mammoths, giant sloth mashed, and camels. Perhaps the area was not inhabited by humans.
