Buried Moon

Buried Moon panorama

Once long ago, geologically speaking, when the earth (or a remarkably similar planet) was still soft, a small, cratered moon crashed into it--but was only partially buried beneath the surface. Now one of its craters remains a feature of the landscape, comparatively unweathered. (I just imagined it; I didn't work out the science of this.) You may need to use the scroll bar for some monitors.
