Geocache Description:

Come and join us for a fresh morning hike to Koenigswarte, from where we hope to watch the lunar eclipse.


There will be a total eclipse of the Moon on Monday 28 September, 2015 lasting from 02:11 AM–07:22 AM. The Moon will be totally eclipsed for 1 hour and 12 minutes. The maximum eclipse "is scheduled" for 4:47 AM. The interesting thing about this lunar eclipse is the fact that the Moon will be at perigee (closest point to the Earth) during the eclipse, making it look larger than usual.

At least if it is not behind the clouds or sunk in mist...

 

You can join us on the Parking Waypoint at 4:00 AM, or just spawn directly at the base of the observation tower Koenigswarte at 4:40 AM.

 

The logbook will be available at the base of the observation tower (cache coordinates) from 4:40 AM till 5:10 AM.

 

Disclaimer

We are not planning to provide any sophisticated tools, telescopes nor any lectures on the topic. This is rather going to be a plain existential experience of enjoying the chilly autumn morning in the forest with (possibly) an interesting event visible in the sky. If there is a misty weather and no moon observable... we just enjoy the walk! However, feel free to bring a telescope or anything else you wish to enhance the experience of watching the eclipse.

Access fee

The entrance to the observation tower costs 1 eur per person. However, you do not need to enter the tower to take part in this event.

 

 

All that you touch All that you see All that you taste All you feel. 
All that you love All that you hate All you distrust All you save. 
All that you give All that you deal All that you buy, beg, borrow or steal. 
All you create All you destroy All that you do All that you say. 
All that you eat And everyone you meet All that you slight And everyone you fight. 
All that is now All that is gone All that's to come and everything under the sun is in tune 
but the s̶u̶n̶ moon is eclipsed by the m̶o̶o̶n̶ earth. 

"There is no dark side of the moon really. Matter of fact it's all dark."
