Snow!

Snow on the road

Ok, I have to admit that this is not a lot of snow. But when you get out of the work and see the white road, you can start dreaming about walking in snowy forest, skiing, Christmas holidays…

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.

Presentation of the model can be found (in Finnish) on Ursa Astronomy Association website: http://www.ursa.fi/tahtitieteesta/aurinkokuntamalli.html
