It is  the  world’s  third  largest  meteoritic crater & only  the  saline  water  ecosystem in Basalt  rock. It is situatedbetween latitude of 19058’   and longitude 76031’. The  Lonar  lake is  India’s  largest  and  Worlds third  largest  meteoritic  crater.
It is formed some 50,000 years ago (Lafoundand Dietz 1964).
