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?

What does ATS think, real or fake?

I am deeply intrigued by the recent meteorite strike in Russia, but your video is currently not working. Could you kindly post the link?

Thank you!

Nope.

That would be the Darvaza gas crater.



Derweze (Turkmen language: The Gate, also known as Darvaza) is a Turkmenistan village of about 350 inhabitants, located in the middle of the Kara-Kum desert, about 260 km north from Ashgabat. Locals have named the cavern The Door to Hell.


Clicky me for photos!!!

Thanks! Those sneaky Russians, something about that video didn't seem right.

I saw this video a while ago and when I saw people claiming it was the creator I just lolled. You'd think if the crater were that big there would be more destruction to civilisation!

You want it to cause mass destruction? And kill millions?
