The crater is exposed, 390 metres (1,280 ft) wide and roughly circular. The rim rises up to 53 metres (174 ft) above the bottom of the crater. Sediments in the crater are approximately 23 metres (75 ft) thick. Its age is estimated to be 3.1 ± 0.3 million years (Pliocene).
Tektite is found around the crater, although very few meteorites have been found. Zerga meteorite was found in 1973 at the bottom of the crater, but scientists are unsure if it is the same meteorite (or even a part of it) that formed the crater.
