Geocache Description:



Alien Artillery #1 Probe

Special Agents: Following the discovery of the nearby anomaly, code named THRENODY (Ref: GC8P8P4), an entirely new and unexpected situation has arisen. Possibly IN RESPONSE to that anomaly, an unknown party (likely the same one involved in prior incident report code named TRIPODS (Ref: GC690XE) appears to have launched and successfully made two precision strikes at coordinates very close to Anomaly THRENODY. We call the first of these ALIEN ARTILLERY #1: PROBE, the second one ALIEN ARTILLERY #2: TRANSMITTER BEACON (GC8PVCV).

On 4/14/20, Listening Post Beta detected a pair of projectile launches from the Planet Mars. LPB tracked the projectiles to their points of impact, which occurred on 4/26/20 — two sets of coordinates, both in close proximity to ANOMALY TH. (These are NOT thought to be warheads, but data-gathering pods; the purpose for data gathering is as yet unknown.)

This is case file ALIEN ARTILLERY #1: PROBE. Your task is to discover the exact location of the probe and inscribe the requisite agent code on the mission log we believe you will find at the site (this will require you to detour some distance off the Bill Craft Trail). We predict our investigations will prove that we are on the brink of something — in the words of Special Agent Dale Cooper — “both wonderful and strange.” Once this phase of your mission is completed, please be sure to return any object you discover to the exact state in which you found it.

Good luck on your mission of discovery!
Federal Bureau of Investigation Project Director Gordon Cole

Congratulations to Special Agent Night-Hawk, FTF.
