Bjurbole is the biggest recent meteorite fall found in Finland so far. This meteorite broke into many pieces when it hits the sea ice in the gulf of Finland, on the 12 March 1899.
328 kg of material were recovered from 8 meters deep (0.4 meter ice 0.5 meter water and 7 meters mud) by divers. The meteorite had made a 4 meter wide hole in the ice, and mud was spread over a 24 x 33 m wide...
Optically strange oil field in a lake near Niznevartovsk in Siberia, which is one of Russia´s major oil-producing locations.
It looks organic (to me), like fungi spores spreading over the area.
There are loads of oil-drilling facilities and a hi-res area north.

The Odessa crater was formed by a spectacular collision with our planet of an iron meteorite 63,500 years ago.
The Odessa meteorite, named after the town ten miles southwest in western Texas not far from the southeastern corner of New Mexico carved out five clustered craters, four small ones and a larger one. The largest is about 525 feet across and nearly 100 feet deep.
This exceptionally long and bright fireball was seen throughout the Yukon, Northern British Columbia, parts of Alaska, and the Northwest Territories.
Pieces of the 56-metric-ton meteorite rained down over a wide area of Canada on January 18, 2000, at approximately 16:43 UT (08:43 PST local).
Many pieces landed on the frozen Tagish Lake, allowing scientists to recover numerous samp...
Australia has some of the best examples of meteorite impact sites anywhere in the world and Wolfe Creek Crater, Western Australia, is one of the most spectacular. The floor lies 55 metres below the rim of the crater, and although partly buried by windblown sand, the rim of the crater rises to 25 metres above the surrounding plain.
I thought it was the second largest in the world bu...

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 disturbance...
