10 great collision of space objects with the Earth

Imagine staring at the night sky and saw a small point, then point it turned into a bigger doubled, up to the night sky looks a bit brighter, then you realize that the point size of the city of Bandung, then split the night air with the speed of sound coming straight at you, BOOM!
Impact of damage such as Mega-tsunami, earthquake, volcano eruption in the corners of the earth and the loss of a dark day for many years, for those of you who survived he will kill you slowly.
The result now we will see the largest crater in the area - another area dibelahan earth has ever hit by an asteroid, prepared on the diameter of the deceased.

10. Barringer Crater, Arizona, United States

49,000 years ago the rock size star "only" 150 ft and weighing + / - 300,000 tonnes of contained nickel and iron with a speed of 40,000 miles per hour hit the Earth, the result of a meteor collision can be seen 55 km east of Flasgaff, Arizona, USA called the Barringer crater. This crater is the best preserved crater up to now, the same forces that produced 20 million tons of TNT blast!

The result is a diameter of 148 ft (45 m) with a depth of 175 m, found by Daniel Barringer in 1902 for mining, to this day remains a family-owned crater Barringer. Also called Meteor Crater, Coon Butte, and Canyon Diablo.

09. Bosumtwi, Ghana

Located at 30 km south-east of Kumasi, Ghana. Known for its natural lake Bosumtwi when the lake is the impact of the meteor crash 1.3 million years ago.
Depth of 45 km diameter 10.6 m. Continuous rain flooded the former collision makes it formed a lake. Trust the locals lake is a place where souls of the dead to confront the god Twi.

08.Deep Bay, Canada

Being in the Southwest Lake in Saskatchewan, Canada with a width of 13 km and a depth of 220 m occurred about 100 million years ago. Judging from its structure, indeed a terrifying crash.

07. Aorounga Impact Crater, Chad

Aorunga when a meteorite is the area of 1 mile (1.6 km) which hit the Earth around 200-300 million years ago, in a region in the Sahara desert north of Chad, Africa, the collision may occur approximately 1 million years .

06. Gosses Bluff, Australia

Around 142 million years ago a comet with a width of 22 km struck the mainland Australia, with a speed of 40 km / sec, can be equated with 22 000 megaton TNT explosion, wow. . . The results are quite impressive that is left has a diameter of 24 km with a depth of 5000 m.

05. Mistastin Lake, Canada

Located in Labrador, Canada. Lake Mistastin is the shape of the meteorite hit the Earth, the result is a hole with a diameter of 28 km was gaping at the earth's crust.

04. Clearwater lakes, Canada
Wooaaw. . . which is even more powerful, about 290 million years ago an asteroid hit the earth twin close to the beach Hudson Bay Canada, the result is a hole with a diameter of 32 km from a large asteroid, and 22 km from a small asteroid.

03. Kara-Kul, Tajikistan

At an altitude of 13,000 feet (3900 m) above sea level, there are Kara - Kul. also known sebagaiQarokul: 16 miles (25km) wide lake in the Pamir Mountains in Tajikistan, near the Chinese border. The lake is actually located within 28 miles (45km) wide circular depression, which was hit by a meteorite approximately 5 million years ago, Kara-kul only discovered recently, through satellite imagery.

02. Manicouagan, Canada

Manicouagan Reservoir (Lake Manicouagan) also known as the "eye of Quebec", about 212 million years ago with a 5 km wide asteroid hitting the earth, leaving a giant hole with a diameter of 100 km.

01. Chicxulub, Mexico

Buried underneath the Yucat√°n Peninsula in Mexico, near the village of Chicxulub (which means "tail of the devil" in Mayan), this is an ancient crater with the greatest impact with a diameter of 107 km. The collision occurred about 65 million years ago when a comet or asteroid about the size of a small town mengahantam (equivalent to 100 teratons of TNT) on Earth and cause a mega-tsunamis, earthquakes and volcanic eruptions around the world
