Examples of STS and ISS Images of Earth's Craters

 

Astronauts have captured views of Earth’s impact craters from the International Space Station (ISS) and the former Space Transportation System (STS - aka Space Shuttle).  The images of impact craters below have been collated from a larger inventory of Earth observation images posted at The Gateway to Astronaut Photography of Earth which is a product of the JSC Image Science and Analysis Laboratory and the JSC Astromaterials Research and Exploration Science Directorate.    This atlas complements LPI’s 1988 Astronaut’s Guidebook to Terrestrial Impact Craters.  An on-line atlas with the locations of Earth’s impact craters can be found by clicking on the map icon in the upper left corner of this page.

Barringer Impact Crater (aka Meteor Crater), Arizona, United States

Bigach Impact Crater, Kazakhstan


Bigach Impact Crater, Kazakhstan


Some meteor impact craters, like Barringer Crater in Arizona, are easily recognizable on the landscape due to well-preserved form and features. Other impact structures, such as Bigach Impact Crater in northeastern Kazakhstan are harder to recognize due to their age, modification by subsequent geologic processes, or even human alteration of the landscape.

At approximately 5 million years old, Bigach is a relatively young geologic feature; however active tectonic processes in the region have caused movement of parts of the structure along faults, leading to a somewhat angular appearance (image center).

The roughly circular rim of the 8 km in diameter structure is still discernable around the relatively flat interior in this astronaut photograph. In addition to modification by faulting and erosion, the interior of the impact structure has also been used for agricultural activities, as indicated by the presence of tan regular graded fields. Other rectangular agricultural fields are visible to the northeast and east. The closest settlement, Novopavlovka, is barely visible near the top of the image.

Piccaninny Impact Crater, Western Australia, Australia

   
The Piccaninny structure is located within the semi-arid Purnululu National Park and World Heritage site, and is thought to have been formed less than 360 million years ago. Specifically, the 7.5 km diameter structure forms a roughly circular plateau (image left, approximate extent marked by the white ellipse) within the striking sandstone cone towers of the Bungle Bungle Range, visible here as the dark gray-brown regions adjacent to the impact structure. Geological evidence indicating an impact structure includes regional folding and faulting patterns both within and surrounding the plateau. Features confirming an impact, such as shock textures (indicating rapid compression, melting, and fracturing during impact) in rocks and minerals have not yet been found; this is perhaps due to removal during erosion of an original crater.

Surface soils of the sparsely vegetated valley adjacent to the Bungle Bungle Range appear a reddish brown at image right. More abundant green vegetation is recognizable in riparian areas along major stream and river channels, such as the Ord River.

Shoemaker Impact Crater, Western Australia, Australia

   

Shoemaker Impact Structure, Western Australia

The Shoemaker (formerly Teague) Impact Structure—located in Western Australia to the southeast of the Carnarvon Range—presents an other-worldly appearance in this astronaut photograph. The Shoemaker impact site is approximately 30 km in diameter, and is clearly defined by concentric ring structures formed in sedimentary rocks (brown to dark brown, image center) that were deformed by the impact event approximately 1630 million years ago (as reported by the Earth Impact Database). Other published age-dating analyses of granitic rocks at the core of the structure call into question this age of the impact event (Pirajno et al. 2003).

Several saline and ephemeral lakes—Nabberu, Teague, Shoemaker, and numerous smaller ponds—occupy the land surface between the concentric ring structures. Differences in color result from both water depth and suspended sediments, with some bright salt crusts visible around the edges of smaller ponds (image center). The Teague Impact Structure was renamed Shoemaker in honor of Dr. Eugene M. Shoemaker (1928-1997), a pioneer in the field of impact crater studies and planetary geology, and founder of the Astrogeology Branch of the United States Geological Survey.
