Meteor Crater in Silicon Valley?

Downtown San Jose is just off the photo to the right, and NASA Ames is in the clouds. I saw this today while mountain biking up along Montebello, and didn’t realize how huge this hole in the ground really was (the view from the other side is not so stark). It looks like the one in Arizona. ;-)

 

Update for Flickrcache: Here is the view from the air.
