This is a discussion thread for the following file:<br><br><b><a href=http://www.googleearthhacks.com/dlfile18540/Reisadalen-Impact.htm>Reisadalen Impact</a></b><br><br>Northern Norway was hit with an meteorite impact comparable to the atomic bomb on Wednesday, 7th June, 2006.<br />
For several seconds, residents of the northern part of Troms and the western areas of Finnmark saw a ball of fire crossing the sky.<br />
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.<br />
The meteorite hit a mountainside in Reisadalen in North Troms, and was probably the largest known to have struck Norway.<br />
As the actual impact site hasn't been found the placemark is centred on Reisadalen.<br><br><img src=http://www.googleearthhacks.com/images/new/080505/876465Clipboard09.jpg>
