Barringer Crater.......

Fifty thousand years ago a meteorite collided with the Earth in what is now called Northern Arizona. A force of 2 1/2 million tons of TNT was the explosion equivalent in power. A guy called Barringer , a mining engineer, was the first guy to claim it was the result of an impact.

This is Barringer's diagram of meteoritic deposits.
