Lonar is the pre-historic site of a meteor which crashed on earth some 50,000 years ago and formed a large crater (few hundred meters in diameter) in the ground. Though there are other impact craters in the world but this one is the only in basalt rock. The pH value of water in the lake which has formed in the crater is 10.7 which points to its alkaline nature.
