I decided to see if gigapan stitch could do a reasonable job on an old hand held panorama I took - not bad! Sorry it's not color corrected and all.
About 4000-5000 years ago, a smallish iron rock came out of the sky and made these craters. It fragmented while still falling to make a number of craters.

This panorama includes crater 8 (left), the Water Crater (called that because it sometimes has water in it = crater 6), and crater 7 (the largest, and most likely a double crater)

There are 11 or 12 craters all together,
and in the numbering system, some were shown to not be craters. So 1 and 2 aren't there any more, 7 is probably 2 craters, and 4 is 4 and 4a.

Meteorites have been found by these craters. However, this is now a conservation district, and collecting is not allowed.
