The countdown has begun for an extraordinary celestial experience as we gear up for the inaugural Co-event in Finland! Set against the breathtaking backdrop of Kuusamo, nestled right at the border of the Arctic Circle, this promises to be an adventure like no other.
We recently received an awe-inspiring sneak peek of the sky we’ll encounter on our journey, courtesy of Planetario de Serón. Their stunning video showcased the mesmerizing vista awaiting us—a canvas painted by the heavens themselves. Prepare to be enchanted by the magical skies that illuminate this winter wonderland.
Kuusamo’s proximity to the Winter Solstice adds a unique touch to this celestial affair. The anticipation is high as we eagerly await the magical moments during this time, especially for the highly anticipated two hours of sunlight. It’s a chance to witness nature’s spectacle in its purest form—so don’t miss this extraordinary opportunity!
The allure of experiencing daylight in the midst of the winter’s icy embrace is an adventure worth embarking on. It’s an invitation to immerse yourself in the enchanting blend of celestial phenomena and the natural beauty of Finland’s wintry landscapes.
Curiosity sparked a quest for knowledge about the daylight hours around the second week of December in Kuusamo, Finland. The latitude of 66 is just a stone’s throw away from the Arctic Circle—an intriguing prospect for those of us accustomed to more southern terrains.
Cultural diversity is another facet that enchants us. Exploring the constellations of the Sami culture in northern Finland offers a window into their cultural and historical significance. It’s a chance to understand what holds importance in their world and how the stars have woven themselves into their heritage.
And now, behold! The final demo, a culmination of Raúl Martínez Morales’s work at the planetarium, showcasing the simulation of sunrise and sunset in Kuusamo.
