Ames is a town in southeastern Major County, Oklahoma, United States; and has a population of 239. About 450 million years ago, a meteor struck north-central Oklahoma, creating an impact crater – an astrobleme – more than eight miles wide. Today, the small. rural community of Ames proudly claims the crater as its own – and as an important contributor to the geological knowledge of the nation’s petroleum industry. 

Ames is located 27 miles west of Enid, Oklahoma.
