#1: Point overview

(visited by Pavel Balandin)

01-Jan-2012 It was the idea to meet new year in the Astronomic centre of the Europe (GMT+1). This is the point which has exact NY when the clock comes to 00:00:00.

And also at this point is a good opportunity to take night shots of N-E-S-W views at night, when people use many fireworks. So I could have as many zeros on my GPS as possible.

Well. The visit was successful, but no one else joined me. I suppose it's a tradition to eat something indoors :)

I had everything needed for NY eve - Christmas tree, Firework, Small animal under the tree. And of course a "present" - GPS with zeros. But there was no snow, I had no opportunity to take it with me.

Coordinator's Note: Marked as incomplete as it doesn't meet the photo requirements.
