Geocache Description:

Solar System - Mercury

This site is the first in a series of geocaches hidden around Fredericton to mark the International Year of Astronomy, 2009. Each cache will represent a planet, starting with Mercury, and will contain a brief description of the planet at the correct scale distance from the Sun. Start your journey among the planets by visiting City Hall and looking at the circle of water (in the summer) around the fountain.(N 45° 57.790' W 66° 38.598') Now imagine that our Sun was this big and Mercury was the size of a big marble orbiting about 240 meters away. Due to the Muggles, the cache has been replaced with a much smaller container. Bring your own pencil.. The complete series can be found at:
