Lapland January 2018

This section provides a brief overview what is planned in January 2018.
We will do a survey of light pollution in Lapland from 12.01.2018 to 20.01.2018.

The timeplan is as follows:
  • I will fly to Kiruna in North Sweden and then drive towards Norway to pick up my colleague Franz Hölker a few days later in Tromsoe
  •  We will then drive to Kilpisjärvi in Finland where we will meet up with a colleague from IGB and some researchers from Russia and Finland
  •  We will stay at the biological station in Kilpisjärvi
  • We will drive back to Kiruna

  • All-sky camera
  • Sky Quality meters with data loggers
  • A road runner SQM system mounted on the car
  • STARS4ALL TESS photometer
  • Luxmeter
  • Spectrometer
