How Geocaching Works

Please note Use of services is subject to the terms and conditions in our disclaimer.

Geocache Description:

Hoboken's Second Street Light Rail Station is the Center of the Universe, or at least the Solar System. Bison tube contains log; please bring your own pen. Please only unscrew the bottom portion of tube, leaving the top half securely in place. Replace as found. Please don't post spoilers.

There is no need to enter the "paid-fare zone".

"A Planetary Park" depicts 9 planets in relative scale and position to the Sun. It is a functioning sundial, and the nine fiberglass planets are a metaphor celebrating the individual and its connection to the world.
What is your connection to the world?

It is the centerpiece of the NJTransit Hudson-Bergen Light Rail Second Street Station. Opened in 2004, there are several artworks on display themed to our Solar System including:
"2nd Street Sunwork" by John Van Alstine
"Lunar Portal" by Charles Fahlen
"Heaven On Earth" by Andra Samelson
"You Are My Solar System" by Marina Temkina
"The People's Universe" by Grace Graupe-Pillard

Although the indigenous have added their own modifications to the artwork (graffiti), please don't deface the art. (We can't have nice things in NJ!)

Enjoy the cache as we all travel through the Universe!
