The Best Asteroid Impact Craters in: Asia, Europe, and Africa

Every continent on Earth has meteorite craters, although unlike the moon, craters on our planet wear away and in many cases disappear due to tectonic forces and erosion. Although determining which meteorite craters on Earth are the very best-preserved is somewhat subjective, the best in Asia is often said to be India's Lonar Crater, the best in Eruope is often said to be Estonia's Kaali Crater, and the best in Africa is often said to be Algeria's Amguid Crater.
