Campo del Cielo refers to a group of iron meteorites and the area in Argentina where they were found. The site straddles the provinces of Chaco and Santiago del Estero, located 1,000 kilometers (620 mi) north-northwest of Buenos Aires, Argentina and approximately 500 kilometers (310 mi) southwest of Asunción, Paraguay. The crater field covers 3 by 18.5 kilometers (1.9 by 11.5 mi) and contains at least 26 craters, the largest being 115 by 91 meters (377 by 299 ft).

The craters are estimated to be four to five thousand years old. They were reported to the general public in 1576, but were already well-known by aboriginal peoples. The craters and surrounding areas contain many fragments of an iron meteorite. In total, approximately 100 tonnes of fragments have been recovered, the most of any meteorite find.
