Geocache Description:

Normaali kätkö lähellä Härkämäen observatoriota Kangaslammilla, Varkaudessa.

Traditional cache near the Taurus Hill Observatory in Kangaslampi, Varkaus

Kätkö sijaitsee vuonna 2003 valmistuneen Härkämäen observatorion lähimaastossa. Härkämäen observatorio on tunnettu mm. eksoplaneettojen havaitsemisesta ja muusta tähtitieteellisestä tutkimustyöstä. Observatorion omistaa paikallinen tähtiharrastusyhdistys Warkauden Kassiopeia (visit link)

Huom! Observatoriolle vievällä tiellä on puomi joka on suurimman osan ajasta suljettu (silloin kun ketään ei ole observatoriolla). Kätkön hakua varten ei ole tarvetta ajaa observatoriolle asti. Voitte jättää auton parkkiin portin tuntumaan tukkimatta tietä kuitenkaan.

Taurus Hill Observatory was established in the year 2003 and it is well known for making exoplanet observations and other astronomical research. The observatory is owned by local astronomical association of Warkauden Kassiopeia (visit link)

Note! There is a gate on the road that leads to the observatory. You don't have to enter behind this gate for fetching the cache. Please park your car so that you don't block the road.
