Wow. Meteor impacts!

Just got a call from my brother. Wanted to know if I knew anything about a meteor impact in western Finland. Not an unreasonable request given my history (and his), but I didn't. So I did a search.

Did you know... That of the top 50 meteor impacts with craters greater than 20 km in size, 7 are in Australia? Neat. Here's the full list:

Cool. Actually been to some of them. Here's the list of impact craters in Australia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_impact_craters_in_Australia

Wolfe Creek is waaay cool and I visited it sometime in the 80's. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wolfe_Creek_crater

But back to my brother. He's going to visit this page, so here's a list of impact craters in Europe: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_impact_craters_in_Europe

He can do a sort and see the ones in Finland.
Cheers!
