The Muonionalusta meteorite is a meteorite classified as fine octahedrite, which impacted in northern Scandinavia, west of the border between Sweden and Finland, about one million years BCE. The first fragment of the Muonionalusta meteorite was found in 1906 near the village of Kitkiöjärvi. Around forty pieces are known today, some being quite large. Other fragments have been found in a 25-by-15-kilometre (15.5 mi × 9.3 mi) area in the Pajala District of Norrbotten County, approximately 140 kilometres (87 mi) north of the Arctic Circle.

The meteorite was first described in 1910 by Professor A. G. Högbom, who named it after the nearby place Muonionalusta on the Muonio River. It was studied in 1948 by Professor Nils Göran David Malmqvist. The Muonionalusta meteorite is probably the oldest known meteorite. The name Muonionalusta has Finnish roots: it comes from the name of the Muonio River and alusta, meaning “base, foundation, stand, mat, tray”, thus probably “base of the Muonio”.
