Serpents Eye Multi-Cache

geohunters99: Well, it's had a good run & lots of fun for those seeking to find it. I plan on using the hardware for a different type of "Night" cache, hopefully as much fun as this one!

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

Geocache Description:


The info (Beacon) you find at STAGE 1 is ONLY available AFTER SUNSET - Good eyesight required

 

Use the WEBPAGE below to determine SUNSET for the NIGHT that you will attempt this cache:

 

http://aa.usno.navy.mil/data/docs/mrst.php

 

Just enter Arizona for state, Cottonwood for City and 1000 meters for height.

SO... for instance on September 22nd, 2019 sunset is at 18:25

The beacon should come on at about 6:25PM

Best visibility is about 30 minutes later…

 

BEACON turns OFF about 2 ½ Hours AFTER SUNSET

 

The flashing lights you see form a sequence of 2 different 4-digit numbers:

Y.YYY

X.XXX

This is the INFO that you’ll use, along with some math to figure out how far STAGE 2 is OFFSET from STAGE 1

 

One number is ADDED to STAGE 1 LATITUDE to give you STAGE 2 LATITUDE

One number is SUBTRACTED from STAGE 1 LONGITUDE to give you STAGE 2 LONGITUDE

 

Here is a worksheet:

Latitude

Longitude

Stage 1

34

43.820

Stage 1

111

58.783

ADD

00

Y.YYY

SUBTRACT

000

X.XXX

Stage 2

34

 

Stage 2

111

 

 

LOOK carefully at the worksheet…

Plan on seeking STAGE 2 in DAYLIGHT and be prepared to bushwhack at least 1/2 mile.

There are NO TRAILS to STAGE 2 (FINAL).

STAGE 2 is a small container with a log and pencil.
