Starscape image - 30.12.2019 at 23.10 Saarijärvi, Espoo Observation number 87475

Visibility III / V

Saarijärvi in Espoo is a surprisingly good dark place for observing / photographing the night sky right next to the SME region. The view from the public beach opens to the west, and I think you can get pretty pictures of the sparsely wooded beach. In the autumn, the belt of the Milky Way is formed above the lake, on winter evenings the main part is played by the constellation Orion, which is now topical due to the dimming of one of its main stars, Betelgeuze. I have noticed that myself.
