Tsõõrikmäe meteorite crate

to map

700 BC

Located near Räpina, about 15 km south of Ilumetsa crater-cluster. A. Aaloe considered Tsõõrikmäe to be of meteoritic origin and assumed that they were created simultaneously. The crater was formed in the post-ice age period (9500 years ago).

The crater berm is 38-40 m in diameter. The peak is wide (mostly 5-10 m), slowly lowering towards the outside. The center is 8-10,5 m deep.
