Yep, that's the famous Sedan Crater, about a quarter mile across. The whole landscape from that crater south about 15 miles is just pitted with hundreds of the craters.

It's at 37 10 36 N 116 02 47 W if anyone is interested.

I saw this on another website and was wondering, other than the learjets on display, what's up with the school bus?!?

This is near downtown STL:

I believe that is a museum of some kind.

EDIT: Yes, I just checked, it's the City Museum in St Louis. You can see the bus in the picture on this page:

Your right. The one of the pic you post was biggest and there are quite few a small ones there also. Intresting stuff kind of looks like a war occured with all those craters.
