This time-lapse sequence shows the northern stars above Kandimalal, Wolfe Creek Meteorite Crater, as seen from the southern rim of the crater. Moonlight illuminates the scene as the moon sets in the western sky. Kandimalal is the Aboriginal name of this very well preserved impact crater, which is located in the East Kimberley region of Western Australia. The crater is about 900 meters in diameter and estimated to be some 300,000 years old. See a night-time panoramic view of this crater. John Goldsmith
