On the Wortham Bluffs (near the spider cave), there's a crater akin to the one that was caused by the Fallen Star:

However, I have not seen it mentioned anywhere, and this is the only other crater I've seen so far.

What is it? Where does it come from?

It's where the hilt of Tyrael's sword landed in Wortham - from its landing point there, it seems to have tumbled into the water and then been dredged up by one of the Wortham fishermen.

One of the lore items - Priest's Contemplations, Part 1 - explains further.

One of the men retrieved a strange artifact in his nets. It looked like the hilt of an ancient blade, but I know it must be more. The fisherman argued with me, but I convinced him to leave it in the safety of the chapel. A holy place for a holy relic.

Verrall, Priest of Wortham

There are similar craters where you obtain the two shards of the sword at the Khazra Den and the Drowned Temple - and where you find the Fallen Star himself, of course - bringing it all together neatly.

Now, if angels would stop tumbling to the Earth, maybe we could keep our ground intact. – Koviko May 27 '12 at 14:02
Angelic terraforming by way of exile? Sounds like an alternate plan for Imperius to destroy humanity. That guy just can't leave well enough alone, can he? – Ashel May 27 '12 at 14:04
