Kaali rest stop

One of the best exposed and accessible meteorite craters in the world.
About 3470 - 3545 years ago, a huge rock from space came hurtling toward the Earth. Several kilometers above the Earth’s surface, the meteorite broke into pieces from the pressure and heat of the atmosphere. The explosion left nine total craters, now known as the Kaali Meteorite Crater Field. The largest crater (which measures 110 meters across) is believed to have been a sacred site for many centuries due to its cosmic origin.
Kaali meteorite crater is the most important geological sight in Saaremaa. It is the most easily accessible and the youngest meteorite crater in Europa.
