I was surprised when he told me how many dedicated amateur astronomers there are in Finland, where arctic temperatures, a nearly unchanging sky in the winter, and the midnight sun in the summer make observing a real challenge. Apparently there are many astronomy clubs in the country with avid members. At least he gets good views of the Aurora Borealis!
Thanks for being our guests and come back to visit Israel soon, Partow!
