List of impact craters in Asia

This List of impact craters in Asia includes all confirmed impact craters as listed in the Earth Impact Database. These features were caused by the collision of large meteorites or comets with the Earth. For eroded or buried craters, the stated diameter typically refers to an estimate of original rim diameter, and may not correspond to present surface features.

Ed. note: This impact would have wiped out all human life in the Middle East. Whether it was made before the flood or after no one in the M.E. would have survived. If this impact took place after Adam and Eve were created the Bible is a LIE! And all the historical accounts around the world are also LIES! CASE CLOSED!

Unconfirmed impact craters

The following craters are officially considered "unconfirmed" because they are not listed in the Earth Impact Database. Due to stringent requirements regarding evidence and peer-reviewed publication, newly-discovered craters or those with difficulty collecting evidence generally are known for some time before becoming listed. However, entries on the unconfirmed list could still have an impact origin disproven.
