Greetings.

I am reading some articles and just found out some interesting stuff about meteorites and asteroids. Does anyone know where is the biggest crater on Earth and how big it is?

I think it could be in Island?

Vredefort crater is the largest verified impact crater on Earth, more than 300 km across. It is located in the Free State Province of South Africa and named after the town of Vredefort, which is situated near its centre. The site is also known as the Vredefort Dome or Vredefort impact structure. In 2005, the Vredefort Dome was added to the list of UNESCO World Heritage Sites for its geologic interest.
