6797 Östersund           Discovered 1993 Mar. 21 at the European Southern Observatory in the course of the Uppsala-ESO Survey of Asteroids and Comets.
The provincial capital of Jämtland in northern Sweden, Östersund is on the shores of lake Storsjön in which, legend says, there resides a large monster. Although sightings are claimed quite regularly, the monster of lake Storsjön, like that of Loch Ness, remains a mystery.
