|Northern Norway was hit with an meteorite impact comparable to the atomic bomb on Wednesday, 7th June, 2006.|
For several seconds, residents of the northern part of Troms and the western areas of Finnmark saw a ball of fire crossing the sky.
A few minutes later an impact was heard and geophysics and seismology stations in Karasjok registered a powerful sound and seismic disturbances at 02:13.25 a.m.
The meteorite hit a mountainside in Reisadalen in North Troms, and was probably the largest known to have struck Norway.
As the actual impact site hasn't been found the placemark is centred on Reisadalen.
