Meteor Crater Arizona

Amazing Recently, I drove past the meteor crater near Winslow, Arizona. Amazing is the only word that comes to mind. They say a rock about 150 feet in diameter hit the ground, and left a crater 4000 feet across and over 500 feet deep. I thought $15 a head to see it was a little steep. I heard someone ask where the original meteor was now, and the reply was, "it vaporized on impact." Wrong. Ted Turner has it. I bet the price of admission is going into a Nixon-like slush fund to buy the meteor back. Only problem, I doubt Ted will part with it! -ski
