...But this is just one of many craters. From the Daily Mail:
The isolated Taimyr crater sits nearly 300 hundreds miles away from dozens of similar, newly-formed giant holes on Yamal peninsula, a region the locals have dubbed 'the end of the world,' according to The Siberian Times.
When it first emerged in 2013, the crater, called the Deryabinsky crevice, nearly swallowed up a group of reindeer herders. Debris of displaced soil, sand, and ice littered an area more than half a mile wide, and researchers think it may have been caused by the explosions of methane or other underground gas.
In the year and a half that followed, it grew rapidly, and the crater is now the site of a lake, which formed as permafrost melted and the walls of the crater caved in.
Now, the leading expert to explore this remote region has revealed the previously unheard reports from witnesses in the surrounding areas.
'There is verbal information that residents of nearby villages – at a distance of 70-100 km – heard a sound like an explosion, and one of them watched a clear glow in the sky.
'It was about one month after the Chelyabinsk meteorite,' Dr Vladimir Epifanov told The Siberian Times.
