Microsoft Rewards Bing Homepage Quiz (06-30-2022): Not to be outdone, Arizona has its own well-known crater. What is its not very inventive name?

A Point of Impact Crater
B Asteroid Crater
C Meteor Crater

Less than 40 miles east of Flagstaff is this 560-foot-deep crater made by parts of an asteroid that crashed into Earth roughly 50,000 years ago. Though everyone calls it ‘Meteor Crater,’ thankfully scientists refer to it as ‘Barringer Crater’ for geologist Daniel Barringer, whose work on this site resulted in the first proof of the existence of an impact crater on Earth.

The correct answer to this quiz is Meteor Crater.
