THE CRATER II AND CLIFF II
Crater dimensions: North-south, 2.4 miles; East-west, 2.3 miles.
Rim is the widest on the northeast side.
Rim is the narrowest on the south and southeast side where swampy lowland is concentrated.
Topographic alignment of slopes and ridges within crater depression conform to and define the shape of the crater; some have radial alignment, while others have circumferential alignment.
An isolated magnetic anomaly is located where the tetrahedral pyramid may have once stood.
Cliff dimensions: Length 1.65 miles; minimum topographic width in middle is 0.5 miles; maximum topographic width expression is 0.7 miles.
Hill Avenue runs along the crest of the ridge and comes close to demarcating the elongate ends of the ridge/Cliff; this road reflect the topography.
Excavation at the crest and center of the ridge exposes sediment that is not of glacial or aeolian origin. The ridge is comprised of bedrock and gray/brown silt and clay fill, which is thickly layered.
Magnetic anomalies occur at the location of the tetrahedral pyramid on Crater, at the geographic center of the Cliff (in the form of a large X), at the Jewish Cemetery along Rte. 52 midway between the Crater and the Cliff (directional underground beacons?), and on the northeast side of the Cliff at the edge of a farm field. These anomalies are aligned along sight lines between the projected position of the tetrahedral pyramid on the rim of the Crater II and the Face II, and between the tetrahedral pyramid and the projected outline of the D&M Pyramid II in the Wallkill River valley.
