Geocache Description:

Solar System - Uranus

This site is the seventh in a series of geocaches hidden around Fredericton. Each cache will represent a planet, 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 Uranus was the size of a basketball. Space is getting very very empty now. It's about 2 billion kilometers to Earth. The light from the sun takes almost 3 hours to get here. Take a card or trinket and leave a space related item if you can. The complete series can be found at:

  • Hanwell Recreation ParkThe gazebo is on the left, picnic tables in the centre, portable toilet with a hand wash on the right, and free public parking on the right. Does the portable toilet qualify for the attribute "Public Restrooms"? To quote the fictional character Lieutenant Commander Worf from the television series Star Trek: The Next Generation: "I suppose that is acceptable."
