Looking to Buy a Car: Go to Salla: Salla Where: Salla Laplandia


|| July 04: 2017 || ά. Some of you might remember from last year the big hustle that came when Salla announced to have an auction for the cars, that the refugees used to pass the border between Russia and Finland. Auction was held by the Finnish customs in co-operation with Salla municipality. Last year all of the cars in the auction were sold and the auction got a huge attention around the world. The numbers show that the news from the auction reached almost 400 million readers and this was only the written information! But last year there were few cars, that were under an investigation by the authorities and couldn’t be sold in the auction. And as you can appreciate, the Finns are terribly thorough about their investigations and quite clever, too. Example? Well, they were trying to put Finlandia at the Concert Hall back in the days when Finland was still the so called, Russian Duchy and the Russian found out about it. So they went to the Concert Hall to stop Finlandia being performed and they found out that the thorough Finns were dutifully holding some other manuscript of some other composer. There was no sign of Sibelius' Finlandia.

Well, they had to leave the hall red faced only for the Finns to get back to Finlandia as soon as the Russian soldiers had left the hall! And with this matter of the investigating these cars, they were thorough, too. But thankfully, they have concluded or rather 'finished' their investigations so that these cars can now be sold off. And there are only 18 cars left for the second auction. Also, four cars are coming to the auction from Raja-Jooseppi, the border station in Inari; except they are not coming but their photographs are being sent. These cars are sold by the pictures and the new owners have to pick the cars up from Inari. Auction starts on Friday, July 14 in Salla village. You can see the cars beforehand on the preliminary audit on Thursday, July 13 between 14:00 and 16:00 and on Friday before the auction from 10:00 to 14:00. On Friday there will be representatives from customs to answer any questions, for which, presumably, they are not going to impose any custom or excise duties or taxes. The cars are situated in Salla recycling station, seven km from the village and the four extra cars are in Raja-Jooseppi.

The story began when the refugee movement started to increase in the end of 2015 and early 2016, it was no longer possible to cross the border with bicycles as the degrees outside went far below zero. The refugees were forced to buy a car to cross the border and stay alive in the freezing weather. Inside the cars you could see how people had been living there: there were wrappers from food and drinks, blankets and in some cars diapers and toys.

''Among the 'East cars' there are pearls for car enthusiasts. Ladas, Volgas and one 'marshrutka' GAZ Gazel city bus. Questions about the second auction have come and the old car enthusiasts are waiting for the last pearls. Hopefully, this auction is going to be as successful as the first one last summer: everything went really well and people were on a good mood. It was a happy and also humorous event! Says Ms Heli Karjalainen from Salla Tourism Marketing association.

On the same day with the auction there is the traditional 'Salla in the Middle of the Night' event. It started when companies in Salla village decided to turn the day upside down because the sun is up 24:7 giving the same light at night as during the day. After the auction there will be a lot of happenings around the main street of the village: husky-dogs, different kind of competitions, lottery, great offers in the shops, live music, salty and sweet snacks all the way from afternoon to the night. It will be an event of good mood where is lots of things to do and see for the whole family. This all happens on the village centre, just around the auction area.

Malaspina Glacier


Released 08.07.2016 10:00: Copyright ESA
 

|| July 08: 2016 || ά.  The Sentinel-2A satellite takes us over southeastern Alaska to the Malaspina Glacier. The climate and topography of this area over the last 12.5 million years have been favourable for glaciers. During the Ice Age, a vast ice sheet covered this spot. When temperatures rose, an interglacial period began.

The coastal mountains and the maritime climate of this area provide the perfect setting for glaciation: some of the world’s longest and most spectacular glaciers are found here. Malaspina is a piedmont glacier – meaning that ice flows down a steep valley and spills out onto a relatively flat plain. It is the largest of its kind, with an area of about 3900 sq km.

In this false-colour image, red depicts vegetated areas while purple shows rock. The wavy purple lines around the lower half of the glacier are rock, soil and other debris that have been deposited by the glacier – called moraines.

Satellite data show that the elevation of Malaspina has dropped over the past decades, and this ice loss has made a significant contribution to sea-level rise. This image, also featured on the Earth from Space video programme, was acquired on March 08, 2016. The low Sun level at Alaska’s high latitudes during this season is evident by the shadows cast north by the Elias Mountains. ω.

Norora: Fast Solar Wind Causes Aurora Light Shows

Sarah Frazier Writing

Images courtesy of Johnny Henriksen/Spaceweather.com


On the night of Oct. 8, 2015, a photographer in Harstad, Norway captured this image of the dancing northern lights. Auroras are created when fast-moving, magnetic solar material strikes Earth’s magnetic bubble, the magnetosphere. This collision rattles the magnetosphere in an event called a geomagnetic storm, sending trapped charged particles zooming down magnetic field lines towards the atmosphere, where they collide brilliantly with molecules in the air, creating auroras.


Though many geomagnetic storms are associated with clouds of solar material that explode from the sun in an event called a coronal mass ejection, or CME, this storm was caused by an especially fast stream of solar wind.

“Geomagnetic storms caused by high-speed solar wind streams aren’t uncommon,” said Leila Mays, a space physicist at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland. “Near solar minimum—when solar activity like CMEs are less frequent—these fast streams are actually the most common cause of geomagnetic storms that create auroras.”

Sentinel-3A Saw the Transition of Day Into Night in Svalbard, Norway

First image from Sentinel-3A: Released 02/03/2016 2:18 pm: Copyright Copernicus data (2016)

 

Captured at 14:09 GMT on 29 February 2016 just two weeks after launch, the first image from the Copernicus Sentinel-3A satellite shows the transition from day to night over Svalbard, Norway.

As well as showing the snow-covered archipelago, the image also details Arctic sea ice and some cloud features. The image was taken by the satellite’s Ocean and Land Colour Instrument, which features 21 distinct bands, a resolution of 300 m and a swath width of 1270 km.

The instrument’s new eyes on Earth will allow ocean ecosystems to be monitored, support vegetation, crop conditions and inland water monitoring.

It will also provide estimates of atmospheric aerosol and clouds, all of which bring significant benefits to society through more informed decision-making. Sentinel-3A’s instrument package also includes a Sea and Land Surface Temperature Radiometer, a Synthetic Aperture Radar Altimeter and a Microwave Radiometer.

ESA's Sentinel 3A Found a Dance Partner in Aurora Borealis

Sentinel-3 dances with aurora: Released 18/02/2016: Length 00:00:09: Copyright: Antero Isola

This video captures a surprising view of Sentinel-3A on its way into orbit amidst the flickering green of the northern lights. The footage, which was taken from Karigasniemi in northern Finland, shows Sentinel-3A’s rocket and either what could be the jettisoned first or second stage of the rocket following behind. Sentinel-3A was launched from Plesetsk in Russia 1000 km away at 17:57 GMT (18:57 CET) on 16 February 2016. This footage was taken from a hilltop (N69°24.0' E25°51.0' ) about six minutes after liftoff. Carrying a suit of cutting-edge instruments, Sentinel-3A will measure Earth’s oceans, land, ice and atmosphere for Europe’s Copernicus programme.

Crete Largest Among Greek Islands 

Proba-V Image

Greece has a large number of islands, which are shown here on a 300 m image taken at 1 September 2013. The estimates on the number of islands range from somewhere around 1,200 to 6,000, depending on the minimum island size to take into account. The number of inhabited islands is variously cited as between 166 and 227. The largest Greek island by area is Crete, located at the southern edge of the Aegean Sea and can be seen in the lower part of the image. The second largest island is Euboea (visible in the upper left part of the image), which is separated from the mainland by the 60m-wide Euripus Strait.Lesbos and Rhodos are the third and fourth largest islands, respectively.

Cyprus

Copyright ESA
 

Covering part of the Eastern Mediterranean this Envisat image is dominated by the island of Cyprus. The capital and largest city, Nicosia, is located near the centre of the image. Around Nicosia we see a concentration of white specks. This is the typical appearance of built-up areas in radar images, since the radar beam is reflected by buildings and other constructions. Similar concentrations are seen south east of Nicosia, where the seafront city of Larnaca lies, and further west along the coast to Limassol, the island’s second largest city.

This image is a compilation of three images from Envisat’s radar, acquired on 27 September, 27 October and 26 November 2011.

The Window of the Heavens Always Open and Calling: All We Have to Do Is: To Choose to Be Open, Listen and Respond

 

 

 

Imagine a Rose-Boat

Imagine a rose floating like a tiny little boat on this ocean of infinity
And raise your soul-sail on this wee-little boat and go seeking out
All along feed on nothing but the light that you gather only light
Fear shall never fathom you nor greed can tempt nor illusion divert
For Love you are by name by deeds you are love's working-map

 

 

Only in the transparent pool of knowledge, chiselled out by the sharp incision of wisdom, is seen the true face of what truth is: That what  beauty paints, that what music sings, that what love makes into a magic. And it is life: a momentary magnificence, a-bloom like a bubble's miniscule exposition, against the spread of this awe-inspiring composition of the the Universe. Only through the path of seeking, learning, asking and developing, only through the vehicles and vesicles of knowledge, only through listening to the endless springs flowing beneath, outside, around and beyond our reach, of wisdom, we find the infinite ocean of love which is boundless, eternal, and being infinite, it makes us, shapes us and frees us onto the miracle of infinite liberty: without border, limitation or end. There is nothing better, larger or deeper that humanity can ever be than to simply be and do love. The Humanion
