Lonar is largest meteor crater not just of India but of entire south-east Asia. Around 52000 years ago, a big rock from the sky entered earth's astosphere, got heated after tremendous friction with the astmosphere and then collided on the earth. it created a huge crate and later on water got accumulated in that and it became a lake. Since the reason for this structure is from outside earth, it has been always an interesting location for astronomist around the world. Lonar is located near Buldhana in cetral Maharashtra. There are numerous interesting temple around this lake and hence it is one of the hot destination for the people who are interested in Heritage. Being right in the middle of deccan plateau makes this area excellent destination for star gazing activities as well. With the uncertain weather, we can not guarantee the good weather for our star gazing activity but be sure that.
