Odessa Meteor Crater

The Odessa Meteor Crater is a meteorite crater in the southwestern part of Ector County, southwest of the city of Odessa of West Texas, United States. It is accessible approximately 3 mi (5 km) south of Interstate 20 at Exit 108 (Moss Road). It is 550 ft (168 m) in diameter and the age is estimated to be around 63,500 years (Pleistocene or younger). Over 1500 meteorites have been recovered from the surrounding area over the years, the largest of which weighed approximately 300 lb (136 kg), but excavations in the main crater confirm that there is no meteorite mass underground and probably never has been. The site has been designated as a

National Natural Landmark by the National Park Service, and a small information area and nature trail has been set up on-site for a self-guided tour.
