Mount Ararat mystery crater


Recommended Posts

If anyone on the NSF is living in or planning a trip to E. Turkey, here's something to check out. 2 physicists hiking on Mt. Ararat (of Noah's Ark fame) found a crater recently. It's origin is unknown, could be a meteorite or not. Here's a link to the story and I attached a pdf with the physicist's report. The coordinates are:

39˚ 47' 30''N, 44˚ 14' 40''E so if you have access to high resolution satellite imagery, go and see.
