Canyon Diablo (canyon)
Canyon Diablo, north of Two Guns, not far from Meteor Crater
The canyon passes 3 miles (4.8 km) west of Meteor Crater. The community of Canyon Diablo, Arizona on the edge of the canyon about 12 miles (19 km) northwest of the crater was the closest community to the crater when scientists began investigating the crater. Consequently the meteorite that caused the crater is officially called the Canyon Diablo meteorite.
