Imagine staring at the night sky and saw a small point, then point it turns into a larger double that, until the night sky looks a bit brighter, then you realize that the point size of the city of Bandung, then split the night air with the speed of sound coming right toward you, BOOM!
Impact damage such as Mega tsunami, earthquake, volcano eruption in the corners of the earth and the loss of daylight to dark for years, for those of you who survived he will kill you slowly.
The result now we will see the largest crater in the region - the other hemisphere has ever hit by asteroids, compiled by diameter.

Here are 10 METEOR greatest ever hit the earth :

1. Kawah Barringer, Arizona, Amerika Serikat
49 000 years ago rock star size is "only" 150 ft and weight + / - 300,000 tonnes of contained nickel and iron with a speed of 40,000 miles / hour hit the Earth, the result of a meteor collision can be seen 55 km east Flasgaff, Arizona USA called the Barringer Crater. This crater is the crater of the best preserved up to now, it generates the same power with bursts of 20 million tons of TNT!
The result is a diameter of 148 ft (45 m) with a depth of 175 m, found by Daniel Barringer in 1902 for mining, to this day Crater was the Barringer family. Also called Meteor Crater, Coon Butte, and Canyon Diablo.

2. Bosumtwi, Ghana
Located at 30 km south-east of Kumasi, Ghana. Renowned for its natural lake Bosumtwi lake when it is the impact of a meteor collision 1.3 million years ago.
Diameter 10.6 km depth of 45 m. Continuous rain flooded the former collision is made ​​to form a lake. Trust the local population of the lake is the place where the soul is dead to expose to the god Twi.

3. Deep Bay, Canada
Being in the Southwest Lake in Saskatchewan, Canada with a width of 13 km and a depth of 220 m occurred about 100 million years ago. Judging from its structure, indeed almighty collision.

4. Aorounga impact crater, Chad
Aorunga is a region when a meteorite by 1 mile (1.6 km) struck Earth about 200-300 million years ago, in a region in the Sahara desert north of Chad, Africa, the collision can occur about 1 million years.

5. Gosses Bluff, Australia
Around 142 million years ago a comet with a width of 22 km hit the mainland Autralia, with a speed of 40 km / sec, can be equated with the explosion of 22,000 megatons of TNT, wow. . . the results are quite impressive that is left has a diameter of 24 km with a depth of 5000 m.

6. Mistastin Lake, Canada
Berlokasi di Labrador, Kanada. Danau Mistastin adalah bentuk dari hasil Meteorit menabrak bumi, hasilnya sebuah lobang dengan diameter 28 km pun menganga di kulit bumi.

7. Clearwater lakes, Canada
Wooaaw. . . which is even more powerful, about 290 million years ago an asteroid hit the earth close to the twin Hudson Bay coast of Canada, the result is a hole with a diameter of 32 km from a large asteroid, and 22 miles from a small asteroid.

8. Kara-Kul, Tajikistan
At an altitude of 13,000 feet (3,900 m) above sea level, there is Kara - Kul. also known sebagaiQarokul: 16 miles (25km) wide lake in the Pamir Mountains in Tajikistan, near the Chinese border. The lake is actually located within 28 miles (45km) wide circular depression, which was hit by a meteorite approximately 5 million years ago, Kara-kul only discovered recently, through satellite imagery.

9. Manicouagan, Kanada
Manicouagan Reservoir (Lake Manicouagan) also known as the "eye of Quebec", about 212 million years ago with a 5 km wide asteroid hit the earth, leaving a giant hole with a diameter of 100 km.

10. Chicxulub, Mexico
Buried underneath the Yucat√°n Peninsula in Mexico, near the Chicxulub village (which means "tail of the devil" in Mayan), this is an ancient crater with the greatest impact with a diameter of 107 km. The collision occurred approximately 65 million years ago when a comet or asteroid the size of a small town mengahantam (equivalent to 100 teratons of TNT) on Earth and cause mega-tsunamis, earthquakes and volcanic eruptions around the world.
