Meteor Crater is a meteorite impact crater located approximately 43 miles (69 km) east of Flagstaff, near Winslow in the northern Arizona desert of the United States. Fifty thousand years ago, a giant fireball streaked across the North American sky. It struck the earth in what is now northern Arizona, exploding with the force of 2 ½ million tons of TNT. Today, Meteor Crater is nearly one mile across (1.1 km) and more than 550 feet (170 m) deep.

Footage used is from 2001 documentary "Space: With Sam Neill".
