I discovered this video online, I thought meteor craters would look different from this, have more debris thrown up by the impact, maybe have dug some
kind of channel, or is that just the way they are depicted on TV and in the movies?
From this angle, if the video is authentic, it would seem the meteor(ite) had a steeper angle of impact. If you notice the person at the left hand
side of the screen this crater looks fairly large, kind of hard to fake, maybe it was an old garbage dump, or an old underground coal fire?

Kara-Kum desert, about 260 km north from Ashgabat. Locals have named the cavern The Door to Hell.
