North American Bumps
This map shows a few of them. The best meteorite crater is at Chicxlub (1). Almost as weel known is the 65 kilometer defacement of the planet at Manicougan (2) which landed a little earlier. Finally we have indicated the Scotian Shelf Meteorite which was less impressive in terms of size but left a pretty big scar on the continental shelf south of Lunenburg (3). Probably fewer people have heard that a crash in the Bay of Fundy near Small Point, Maine has been hypothesized (red circle). This one has minor evidence baking it aty this time.
