Meteor Impact Crater Found Beneath Iowa Town

Scientists believe the meteor that struck the area millions of years ago was about 820 feet in diameter due to the diameter of the crater. The crater joins a suite of Middle Ordovician impact craters in the Midwest that may, or may not, have resulted from the same impactor.
