Geocache Description:

[ENG] Event cache on May 10th 2008 at 21:00 PM.
[EST] Sündmusaare 10.mail 2008 algusega 21:00.

[ENG]
What: It’s time for another great geocaching event (event cache), where we all can gather together, grill and chill, taste the goodies we’ve brought with us, exchange Travel Bugs and Geocoins, chat about geocaching and everything that is related to it. The bravest of us can set up tents and will enjoy the campfire until the morning, when the star shine is already faded away.

Where: If the pilgrims already knew how to navigate by observing the stars, so should geocachers nowadays be able to follow their path. The zero coordinates take you to a place, where you start observing the stars. Near there - by a memorial statue – you’ll find more specific instructions what to observe and which stars tell you the right story. In addition you’ll get to know how to find stars the best.

When: Appropriate time for observing the stars starts at May 10th 2008 at 21:00 PM. This is the time when the instructions will be made available by some magical forces. From that time, there’s also a log book waiting for the “finders” of this event cache. That, of course, if you’re capable of following the path that stars lead you. If you are wise enough and equipped with eagle eyes, you should reach the log book after an hour of star observation. Starting from midnight, the star shine will start to fade away, so all the geocachers with astronomical interests should finish their observations by that time.

How: In this case the most useful instrument for observing the stars is a car. Any kind of them will do, also the ones with low bottoms. After all, star observation is a civilized activity, so we won’t force anyone to go offroading in a swamp. But you should know that you’ll also meet not only asphalt roads and nice lighted places, because the stars might show themselves in the dark or in thick woods. The car should have a well working odometer (to measure the distances you’ve left behind), which has been over times one of the most important tools to locate the stars. You could use GPS’s odometer/counter for that, but in deep forest you shouldn’t count on it too much.
NB! Don’t forget to fill up the car!

In addition: check out this description before leaving home - it might be have changed and supplemented.
It would be great, if you could log a note in advance about your plan to participate!

[EST] Mis: Tegemist on sündmuseaardega, kus jälle üle pika aja saavad kokku geopeiturud ja grillivad koos vorsti, maitsevad kaasa toodud head - paremat, vahetavad Trävelbuge ja Geomünte, ajavad juttu geopeitusest ja kõigest sellega seonduvast. Julgemad panevad üles ka telgid ja jäävad hommikuni nautima lõkkevalgust, peale seda, kui tähtedesära vaatamisest tüdinetud.

Kus: Nagu juba vanad rändrahvad oskasid pelgalt tähtede järgi navigeerida, oskavad seda kindlasti ka tänased geopeiturid. Aarde algkoordinaat viib sind kohta, kus alustad tähtede vaatlemist. Selle koha lähedalt, mälestussamba juurest, leiad täpsemad juhised, mida just vaja vaadelda on ja millised tähed sulle õigust räägivad. Lisaks saad teada ka, kuidas on parim tähti leida.

Millal: Tähevaatluseks sobiv aeg algab 10.mai õhtul kell 21:00. Just siis ilmuvad nagu nõiaväel vastavad juhendid eelmainitud paika. Samast hetkest ootab sündmuseaarde "leidjaid" logiraamat, seda siis seal, kuhu tähed sind juhatavad. Tublimad peaksid arvestama umbes tunnike kestva tähevaatlusega, et logiraamatu asukoht teada saada.
Alates südaööst hakkab tähdede sära tuhmuma, selleks ajaks peaks kõik astronoomiahuvilised oma vaatluseid hakkama lõpetama.

Kuidas: Sobivaimaks abivahendiks tähevaatluse juures on seekord auto. Sobib igasugune, ka madalapõhjaline. Tähevaatlus on siiski tsiviliseeritud värk, sohu offroadima kedagi ei aeta. Küll aga peaks arvestama, et pelgalt asfaldil ja valgustatud paikades ei pruugi tähed nii hästi paista, kui pimedas ja paksu metsa vahel. Autol peaks olema töökorras ja täpne odomeeter, mis on läbi aegade olnud üks tähtsamaid tähtede tuvastamise vahendeid. Hädapärast ajab asja ära ka GPSis olev, kuid selle peale ei maksaks metsateedel väga kindel olla.
NB! ära unusta tankimast, enne kui kohale tuled.

Lisaks: Jälgi aardekirjeldust, see võib muutuda ja täieneda.
Tore, kui annaksid teada eelnevalt oma osalemisest logiteatega.
