CoordinatesLat. N 62°55' Long.E 14°33.84'
Diameter km 0.7
Age Ma or date 455.0 ±10.0
Remarks A long known anomalous structure. A drill core samples revealed some planar deformation features as a evidence of shock metamorphosis. Structure is similar in age than nearby (15km in NE) Lockne impact structure. This is probably a twin impact structure with Lockne (Schmieder et.al. 2014b). Age is for Lockne.
