Geocache Description:

Please note! This is the big city of Chicago and if a muggle happens to see the container he will steal it. Please replace the container so it will not be seen. Thanks!

A large ammo box. This is a cache in a series that represents a scale model of the solar system at 66 million to one scale. Please visit the cache for a scale model of this planet and the scale data. The inner dome of the Adler Planetatrium represents the surface of The Sun.


Earth is the third planet from the Sun and is the largest of the terrestrial planets in the Solar System, in both diameter and mass. It is also referred to as the Earth, Planet Earth, and the World, and in some contexts, Gaia and Terra.



Home to millions of species including humans, Earth is the only place in the universe where life is known to exist. Scientific evidence indicates that the planet formed 4.54 billion years ago, and life appeared on its surface within a billion years. Since then, Earth's biosphere has significantly altered the atmosphere and other abiotic conditions on the planet, enabling the proliferation of aerobic organisms as well as the formation of the ozone layer which, together with Earth's magnetic field, blocks harmful radiation, permitting life on land.
