Locknekratern Meteoritcenter

The Locknecrater Meteorite Center is an experience facility in Ångsta, about the meteorite strike 455 million years ago.

The Locknecrater Meteorite Center is an experience facility in Ångsta, about the meteorite strike 455 million years ago. Here is a minicosmonova and geological exhibition. Guided tours of the museum and home baked café are available. Our exhibition is also attractive to children and young people as they are given the free opportunity to play, explore and learn in a wonderful mix.

455 million years ago, the Storsjö area was 500 m below sea level. At that time, a large meteorite struck at the site where Lake Locknes is today. The meteorite came at a speed of 54000 km / h and weighed 300 million tonnes. The impact was extremely strong and a water amount corresponding to three times Storsjöns was washed away. When the water crashed back into the crater, a kilometer-high water wave (tsunami) was formed.

The water brought with them huge masses of gravel and sand which then hardened into unique rocks, which are only found here in the Storsjö countryside. There are clear remains from the impact and there is still much left to discover in the area.
The Locknecrater is a world-unique study site that attracts researchers from all over the world. Few places offer such opportunities to study a meteorite strike as the Locknecrater.
