Info The Arkenu craters are a pair of eroded impact craters in Libya. They are 10 km and 6.8 km in diameter, and lie about 70 km W of the Jabal Arkanu mountain. The craters are believed to have formed simultaneously as a double impact event less than 140 million years ago (Jurassic or younger). Both are exposed at the surface.

Wikipedia is a multilingual, web-based, free-content encyclopedia project supported by the Wikimedia Foundation and based on an openly editable model. The name "Wikipedia" is a portmanteau of the words wiki (a technology for creating collaborative websites, from the Hawaiian word wiki, meaning "quick") and encyclopedia. Wikipedia's articles provide links designed to guide the user to related pages with additional information. Wikipedia is written collaboratively by largely anonymous Internet volunteers who write without pay. Anyone with Internet access can write and make changes to Wikipedia articles, except in limited cases where editing is restricted to prevent disruption or vandalism. Users can contribute anonymously, under a pseudonym, or, if they choose to, with their real identity.
