A beach, up the Eiffel Tower, surrounded by rose petals and candles... Choosing the location of a marriage proposal is high-stakes.

But one man thought way, way outside the box.

A meteor crater in Northern Arizona is a hotspot for the curious and scientifically inclined.

The world’s best preserved meteorite impact site shows the aftermath of an asteroid hitting the earth’s surface around 50,000 years ago.

It's a good spot for sight-seeing,a coach trip, perhaps – but one Reddit user decided it was the perfect place to propose.

But before user Doteman proposed he memorised every fact about the place.

He wrote on Reddit:

Drove all the way out to the AZ crater to propose to girlfriend. Studied every fact about it for a month, snuck in the proposal while trying to sound like a scientist... she said yes.

She's been dying to visit the crater. We went several miles out of our way so it seemed like the perfect place. It truly was.

'So the crater was actually formed during an atmospheric anomaly known as a super bolide where hot gas compressed by cold and hot air bring about the question of will you marry me before collapsing and creating a massive explosion which decimated local fauna and wildlife.'

Girlfriend while checking Instagram - 'Huh oh yes absolutely.'

That's really upped the stakes for the stag do.
