Henbury (Northern Territory, Australia) (IIIA), Medium Octahedrite (iron) Found 1931

The group of well defined craters at Henbury in Australia's Northern Territory, represent some of the very best authenticated meteorite craters. The largest oval shaped crater measures 220 x 120 yards, and has a depth of around 50 feet. Their shape and the condition of the walls clearly indicate an explosive origin, and are associated with the many masses of meteoritic iron found in and around the craters.
