Geocache Description:

This is a multi-virtual geocache of the solar system put out by the Boston Museum of Science. You will need to visit many parts of the city, NOT JUST INSIDE THE MOS!!

To get credit you must post a photos of you at any Four planets.
UPDATE 2-15-10 Because of missing Planets, You will only need 3 pictures if one of your Planets is Jupiter or beyond.

A picture of you in the Rock Garden at the main entrance of the MOS is fine for Mercury.
Use a photo of the "Royal Sonesta Hotel" for earth.

Everything is in free (no cost) areas of the city.
