New Crater Found

Last night my dad showed me an article about this crater, and I thought it might be interesting to post about it.

The Chesapeake Bay crater is the seventh largest, one of the best preserved,
known craters on Earth. Like all craters, it was formed by a meteorite that crashed into the Earth about 35.5 million years ago, in the
late Eocene period. And to think that we never knew about until now!
