Geocache Description:

Slēpnis ir neliela lock-lock tipa kastīte, novietota pie StarSpace privātās observatorijas netālu no Rīgas. // The cache is a small lock-lock box placed near private observatory StarSpace not far from Riga.


Slēpnis atrodas pie privātas, lauku mājās izveidotas observatorijas Starspace pie Suntažiem. Tā realizē virkni astronomijas popularizēšanas projektu, no kuriem galvenie ir astronomijas vortāls un regulāri astronomijas profesionāļu un interesentu saieti divas reizes gadā, saukti par StarParty. Tajos tiek lasītas lekcijas un notiek diskusijas par dažādiem ar astronomiju saistītiem jautājumiem un, labvēlīgu laikapstākļu gadījumā, veikti debess objektu novērojumi observatorijas un līdzpaņemtajos teleskopos. Slēpnis ir novietots pie observatorijas ar tā īpašnieku atļauju. Konteinera noformējums ir ļoti vienkāršs, jo diemžēl ideja nolikt slēpni ienāca prātā tikai mirkli pirms izbraukšanas uz kārtējo StarParty. Konteinerā atrodas logbuks, divi zīmuļi un divas StarParty #10 nozīmītes pirmajiem atradējiem. Tā kā observatorija ir lauku mājās, iespējama satikšanās ar suņiem un citiem dzīvniekiem. Slēpnis atrodas privātā teritorijā. Tiem, kuriem tas izraisa iebildumus, aicinu slēpni nemeklēt, lai nebojāju noskaņojumu sev un citiem (pievienots 31.03.2014).

The cache is near a privately owned observatory StarSpace, created in a farm near Suntaži. It carries out a number of projects, aimed at the popularization of astronomy. The main of such are the astronomy web-portal and regular meetings of the astronomers, professionals and amateurs. Those StarParties consists of lectures and discussions and, if the sky is clear, observations of the sky objects. The cache is placed near the observatory with a kind permission of the owners. The container contains a logbook, two pencils and two StarParty #10 badges. As it is a farm, you may encounter dogs and other animals.
