Mysterious and amazing places on Earth

The more you travel, the more I wonder, just how much there is in the nature of mysteries and secrets. Such places are everywhere, even near us, if a good search, you can find a couple of mysterious places.

Recently, digging in the Internet, I found a large list of mysterious places of the Earth. He interested me greatly and I began to dig further. After some time I found that this list is simply copied multiple times on dozens of sites, without some clarifications, etc.

The crater was formed about 50 thousand years ago after the fall of the 50-meter meteorite, which weighed about 300 thousand tons and flying at a speed of 45-60 thousand km/h. Blast from the fall was three times moneyusa of the Tunguska meteorite and was similar in power to the explosion of 20 million tons of TNT or 1000 atomic bombs similar to that dropped on Hiroshima. In and around the Arizona crater found fragments of Nickel iron meteorite.
