Geocache Description:


OK - I promised a physics cache, so here we go!

At the posted coordinates, you will find a cannon! It is a German 77mm horse drawn cannon. It shoots 16 pound projectiles! Shortly after installing the cannon in its current location, they fired it one last time! The impact of the shot resulted in a crater 15m wide! Next to the crater are a couple of tree stumps which were uprooted as a result of the impact. The cache can be found in one of the stumps.

Assume the cannon was fired at maximum force at an angle of 5.32° above the horizon. - Happy hunting!
