Meteor Impact Sites on Google Maps

What with tonight's pass of Asteroid 2012 DA14 and a meteor crashing into the Chelyabinsk region of Russia early this morning I've been spending way too much time Googling celestial bodies today.

My searching on Google did turn up this informative post from the Google Earth Blog about meteor craters. The post includes a link to a KML file of 172 meteor impact sites, with a size indicator for the largest ones. You can use Google Maps or Google Earth to browse the KML file. Here's a link to view the list using the Google Earth browser plug-in inside Google Maps.
