Reisadalen Impact

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.
