Geocache Description:



"Tam v jiznich morich, kde setkas se s lovcem, tam cestu ti ukaze snad jen muj pes.
Pak vydej se stejne, jak Slunce na nebi, do krajin znamych, tou z nejkratsich cest.
Cesta tva daleka, v severni kraje, tam hledej bohatstvi, co neda ti spat.
Za Novou hvezdou bez, cil tvuj ti ukaze, tam najdes bohatstvi, co touzis znat."


Predstavuji vam prepis latinsky psane poznamky na zadni strane listu s uvedenou ilustraci z pozustalosti po Tychu Brahe. Autorem je zrejme sam Brahe, neni vsak jasne, komu byl text urcen.
Brahe byl neduverivy, po zkusenosti s kradezi vysledku svych pozorovani se o sve poznatky nerad delil. Vyjimku tvorily prace, darovane mecenasum. Ziskat udaje Braheho tricetileteho pozorovani pohybu nebeskych teles touzil zejmena Kepler, ktery je potreboval pro potvrzeni vlastnich hypotez o stavbe vesmiru. Po Braheho smrti skoncilo 21 svazku se souhlasem Rudolfa II v Keplerovych rukach. Uvedeny text se ke Keplerovi, ktery by jeho vyznam jiste pochopil, zrejme nedostal.


"Where you meet the Hunter in the Southern seas, only my Dog may show you the way.
Follow the shortest route to the familiar lands like the Sun in the sky.
It is a long way to the Northern lands; seek treasures there that haunt your sleepless nights.
Follow the New Star that will show you your goal; there lies the fortune you yearn to find."


Here is a transcript of a Latin note that was found scribbled on the back of the attached illustration from the inheritance of Tycho Brahe. Apparently, the author of the note is Brahe but the addressee is uncertain. After Brahe's death, emperor Rudolph II entrusted Brahe's records of his observation into the hands of Johannes Kepler who was probably unaware of the text. If he had known it he would certainly have understood.
Don't hesitate to ask the owner for help.
