Muonionalusta. Video on screen. 2014
The Muonionalusta is an iron meteorite which impacted in northern Scandinavia, west of the border between Sweden and Finland, about one million years BCE. The meteorite was first described in 1910 by Professor A. G. Högbom, who named it "Muonionalusta", after a nearby place on the Muonio River. The Muonionalusta, probably the oldest meteorite known to man, marks the first occurrence of stishovite in an iron meteorite.
