Crater characteristics

Several questions[edit]

What was the clue that there had been an impact, since the terrain is flat now?

What can be said about the speed of impact?

What can be said about whether it was a direct hit or a hit at a glance?

Why is the red spot on the map about as big as a county? I don't believe the crater is that big.
