12. Wolf Creek, Western Australia, Australia
Wolf Creek is a relatively well-preserved crater that is partly buried under windblown sand. The crater is situated in the flat desert plains of north central Australia. Its crater rim rises ~25 meters above the surrounding plains, and the crater floor is ~50 meters below the rim. Oxidized remnants of iron meteoritic material, as well as some impact glass, have been found at Wolf Creek. This photograph is a south-looking, oblique aerial view of the crater.
