Geocache Description:

The Geolympix Solar System Series was inspired by a visit to Zürich in 2010, where I saw a 1:1bn scale solar system. GSS caches are hidden at scale distances from the 'sun'; the golden globe atop West Wycombe church.

Neptune is a gas planet, the eighth and farthest plant from our sun. It's around 17 times as massive as the Earth and was believed to have been seen by Galileo, who may have mistaken it for a star.

This cache isn't hidden at the above co-ords. You'll need to gather figures for letters A to F from caches between Mercury and Uranus (see links below) and put them into the following formula:

N51° (CxA).(Bx(((E+C)x(AxE)xB)-B)) W000° ((FxF)+((C+D)xE)).((F/E)-B)((AxDxF)+D)

For your notes: A= ___ |B= ___ |C= ___ | D= ___ | E= ___ | F= ___

There is a stamp in the cache, making it a Letterbox Hybrid, not a puzzle. Please don't remove this stamp! You'll also find the co-ord correction figures you'll need to find Pluto. If you find yourself a number short, it's probably a 0 and probably goes next to a 3... If you find yourself parked close to a pub, check the back garden for some strange ornaments.
