The light shineth upon the old car. Will it be refurbished if not resurrected?

Someone has to post after LeRolls, so here's a sunset across Ngorogoro Crater.

Looks the Meteor Crater (AKA Barringer Crater in Arizona. It's probably the best preserved astrobleme structure in the world, being both young and in a desert, but it is far, far from being large among known impact sites. Look up the Sudbury Basin in Canada, a major source of nickel and is generally classified as the oldest (1.8+ billion years) and one of the largest (130km, 81mi diameter) astrobleme structures on Earth.

That is correct WPRESTO; it is the Barringe crater. For those that don’t know it is named Barringe crater after the man who 1st correctly identified it as a meteor crater. And when I refer to it as “really really big” it was not my intent to say it is the biggest. One of the things that is lacking in a photo,without something in the photo to give it a sense of scale, is the size of something. Other craters are larger and older, but this is considered the best-preserved crater. In this case, it comes down to that it is easiest to see that it is a crater. But even standing on the rim viewing it with your own eyes you don’t even get a sense of its scale then. I used a Sigma 8-16mm at 8 mm on an APS C camera to try to capture the crater. And even at 8 mm (about 120°), I couldn’t get it all in one frame. I’ve never had that problem before with this lens (said with a slightly sad and puzzled expression). Using your own eyes, you need to turn your head quite a bit to see the whole thing, and that is still not giving you a sense of scale. A few things to possibly help you put this into perspective. To the left of the lens flare on the crater rim is a large boulder. This is called “house boulder” because is said to be the size of a standard American house. But even that only helps a little bit. If you look extremely carefully at the crater floor, you will see that there are a few abandoned structures. Near one of those, they have placed an American flag the same size as the flag that was placed on the moon. Next to this flag is a life-size (6 foottall) white plywood cutout of an astronaut. Without this being pointed out most people (without optical aids) can not identify these objects nor even notice them.

I'll have to dig out my chromes from a visit to that spot, scan and post just for fun. Alas, it is all to difficult to locate specific chromes, as the collection is massive, and grew unmanageable before any thought was put to managing it.
