Neptunus: a planet in the bay

Neptunus

Around Laajalahti bay, between Espoo and Helsinki, a small size model of solar system has been built. With the scale 1:1,000,000,000, Neptunus is a 5cm diameter blue ball, 4.5 km away from the sun. It is located in Lehtisaari island, in front of Otaniemi campus.
