A 'New' Meteor Crater in Egypt ?

Posted by Len Entwisle at 09:32 on 2010 Jul 24

Whilst net browsing this morning I stumbled on this reported crater discovery in the Egyptian desert . Search for Kamil Crater National Geographic . I have problems with a working long URL insertion here ! Kamil Crater . I thought that it might be of general interest , particularly as it is an outcome of pro searches on Google Earth !I seem to recall an earlier discovery of a much larger impact using the same Google tool a few years ago ! PS Probably not on 'Street View' . This might be worth a Twitter (but I don't Tweet )
