Team Webmekka: Tak for alle besøg.
Jeg har fulgt med mange af de geocachere, der har taget udfordringen op med denne mystery - og det har moret mig meget.

Karlsvognen - Big Dipper (Ursa Major)

Dansk

Fakta

Karlsvognen, der er en del af Store Bjørn stjernebilledet (Ursa Major), består af 8 store stjerner. Da Karlsvognen er en del af Store Bjørn, er der ikke tale om et officielt stjerne billede, men derimod et asterisme (asterisme er betegnelsen for et mønster af stjerner). Når man kigger på Karlsvognen, ser man kun 7 stjerner - det er fordi Mizar og Alcor B er en dobbeltstjerne. Alcor B blev først opdaget fornylig (i 2009).

De 8 stjerner i Karlsvognen:

Navn   Afstand til jorden (lysår)
Dubhe   124  
Merak   79  
Phecda   84  
Megrez   81  
Alioth   81  
Mizar   78  
Alcor B   78  
Alkaid   101  
 
Et lysår er den afstand lyset tilbagelægger på et år (lysets hastighed: 300.000 km/sek), dvs. at det bliver til ca. 9.460.730.472.580 km.

Som barn var jeg ofte ude og kigge på stjernehimlen, og da jeg gerne ville kunne finde Karlsvognen, fortalte min far, at jeg skulle lede efter en spejlvendt 5-tal.
Dengang kunne jeg ikke vide, at jeg en dag ville blive geocacher, og at der findes koordinater oppe i stjernerne.

Du skal igennem 6 waypoints før du når frem til FC.
Ting, du måske får behov for på turen: Pincet, spejl, forstørrelsesglas, BeeTagg, lygte (det er ikke en natcache).

For at finde de forskellige waypoints, får du behov for at færdes blandt træer og buske. Undgå venligst at beskadige vegetationen, og flytter du på noget, så placér det venligst igen, som du fandt det.

Jeg kigger stadig tit på stjernerne, men nu er det sammen med fru Webmekka, og vi ved, at der er flere koordinater oppe i stjernerne, men vi har bare ikke fundet dem endnu.

Facts

The Big Dipper (aka the Plough or Saptarshi), which is a part of (Ursa Major), consists of 8 big stars. Since the Big Dipper is part of the Great Bear, is not an official constellation, but an asterism (asterism is the term for a pattern of stars). When you look at the Big Dipper, you only see 7 stars - it is because Mizar and Alcor B is a double star. Alcor B was discovered recently (in 2009).
 

The 8 stars in Big Dipper:

Name   Distance to Earth (light years)
Dubhe   124  
Merak   79  
Phecda   84  
Megrez   81  
Alioth   81  
Mizar   78  
Alcor B   78  
Alkaid   101  
 
One light-year is the distance light travels in one year (speed of light: 186,000 miles/sec.), which is approx. 5,878,625,373,183.608 miles.

As a child, I often vent out to look at the stars, and since I always wanted to find the Big Dipper, my father told me, that I should look for the number 5, but inverted.
Back then I couldn't know that I would one day become a geocacher and that there exist coordinates among the stars.

You need to go thru 6 waypoints before you reach Final Coordinate.
Things you may need on your way: Tweezers, mirror, magnifying glass, BeeTagg, flashlight (this is not a night cache).

To find the different waypoints, you need to move among trees and bushes. Please avoid damaging the vegetation, and if you move something, then place it back as you found it .

I still often look at the stars, but now it is together with Mrs. Webmekka, and we know there are more coordinates up in the stars, but we just haven't found them yet.
