Aus­tralian crater

Focus-Science and Technology - - Q & A -

In this false-colour im­age taken by the Coper­ni­cus Sen­tinel-2A satel­lite, we can see the Gosses Bluff crater in Aus­tralia’s North­ern Ter­ri­tory. The crater is vis­i­ble in the left cen­tre of the im­age and is about 22km in di­am­e­ter. It was most likely formed 140 mil­lion years ago by the im­pact of a large comet or me­te­orite slam­ming into the sur­face of Earth.
