Vigie-Cratère is a citizen science project from France.[1] In Vigie-Cratère, ordinary people help scientists find craters on the surface of the Earth left by meteors, which are rocks that float through outer space.[2] After they hit the Earth, they are called meteorites.

Vigie-Cratère is part of Vigie-Ciel. France's National Museum of Natural History, CNRS, University of Paris Saclay, IRD, Paris Observatory, Grenoble Alpes University, Universcience, the Pythéas Institute, and the Natural History Museum Vienna pay for Vigie-Cratère.[1]
