Odessa Meteor Crater

Odessa Meteor Crater: A meteorite created a shallow, cone-shaped impactcrater in Texas' High Plains. It measures approximately 17 feet in height and its rim rises less than 1 meter (less then 2 feet) from the ground.

CAME FROM OUTERSPACE. Odessa Meteor Crater in Odessa, the scene of a disastrous mash-up of space and earth, has an interpretive center that combines science fact with a huge hole in its ground, which may remind one of science fiction. One of the biggest impact craters of this country was Ground Zero for an incoming shower of nickel iron meteorites.

Located in the Texas Pecos Trail Region

Odessa Crater: Odessa Crater is one of five meteorite-impact craters. It measures 165 meters wide. Other 4 are significantly smaller. Odessa's craters can be found about 10 miles south of Odessa. This is one of the few craters worldwide that has been associated with meteorites recovered.

Stonehenge Replica

Stonehenge Replica - Odessa, Texas

Stonehenge Replica at the UTPB Campus - Odessa (Texas)

Stonehenge Replica Discovered in Odessa Texas: This is a collection of huge stacked rocks from Texas that includes a joke about modern technology.

At the university's entrance, a replica of Stonehenge is maintained in good condition. It measures 70 percent of the original Stonehenge. The project was completed in 2004.

Permian Basin Stonehenge

This "Replica" has been created by Odessa. It seems quite outlandish. An ensemble of citizens completing their long-held dreams in June 2004. The University of Texas of Permian basin's northeastern side was home to about 20 blocks of stone that are replicas of the historic megalith of southwest England. The stone was donated to Texas by TexaStone in Garden City.

The Stonehenge Replica group's achievements are described on a plaque located near the new monument. It remarks in a somewhat snarky manner that scientists allowed man to move the 30,000-pound stones in only six weeks. Thus, the Stonehenge Replica team created a much more precise and accurate replica of the English original.

McKinney Park sparkles with Christmas lights

McKinney Park is ready for Christmas. It's time for the city to feel festive. Everyone should enjoy it. This is why I am gratifying our parks department, and everyone. You all have to put in a great deal of effort. A special thanks to the staff from the police, as well as to their manager and officers for making these events smooth and ensuring that all are safe.

A recent review: "This was our third annual trip to Christmas lights. Betty was awestruck and loved exploring the park for all of the Christmas lights. Lucy wasn't there for the party this year, but next year I am sure they will be."
