This long-lost asteroid impact was so big its debris left more than 30 craters

Ricochet from a meteorite impact on Earth created a huge ‘field’ of craters that so far, we have only seen examples of on other planets.

The unique site in southeast Wyoming has more than 30 craters that were formed about 280 million years ago, researchers said in a new study. The craters were created after a meteorite impact hundreds of miles (or kilometers) away blew boulders of bedrock into the air.
