The world’s best preserved meteorite impact site on Earth. Located just minutes from Interstate 40 in Northern Arizona near Winslow, Meteor Crater is the breath-taking result of a collision between an asteroid traveling 26,000 miles per hour and planet Earth approximately 50,000 years ago.
Meteor Crater’s “IMPACT, Mystery of Meteor Crater” movie, featuring exciting 3D modeling and animation allows viewers to experience the thunderous sound and explosive fury of the meteor’s super-heated trip through the Earth’s atmosphere. The spectacular result of the collision that rocked the American Southwest with the energy of more than 20 million tons of TNT can be explored first-hand just outside the Discovery Center.
