I was roaming around on Google Earth, trying to find the location of the old XERA radio transmitters (the station that used to advertise the live baby chicks and autographed pictures of Jesus) when I ran across a town called Escobedo, Coahuila, Mexico, that appears to be perched on the edge of a pretty good sized crater; there are a number of smaller craters, mainly to the northwest and southeast, running all the way to the US border. I can't find any references to any volcanoes or meteor strikes in that area on the internet (I know Mexico City is geologically active). Would you by chance know what caused these particular formations? It's at 29.15.00N by 102.10.50W. Thanks in advance for your time!
