This special creation of a cache was made by CyberJunkie and he placed it the 18th of April, 2002.
Gavia adopted the cache the 12th of September, 2006, and restored it. It was reopened the 27th of January, 2007.

Per aspera ad astra, is NOT a "smash and grab" cache.

The cache is in two stages, one day and one night stage. It's a mystery cache that requires some patience.
First part should be no problem to solve, but for the second one it needs to be dark. You must bring a good torch!

Per aspera ad astra är ingen "smash and grab" cache! Den är i två delar, en dagdel och en nattdel och kräver ett visst mått av tålamod!
All nödvändig information som du behöver för att hitta steg två, finns på en blå pappersremsa i första cachen. Ta med dig en pappersremsa. Läs den ordentligt och följ noggrant instruktionen! Glöm inte att ta med dig en rejäl ficklampa till steg två!
