Geocache Description:

Situated close to an observatory burnt out by the January 2003 firestorm.

NOTE: This cache has been relocated to a more appropriate location

Original text from Chris:

Covering the bushfires for german media, i had to visit this area and was shocked about the enormous power of this firestorm. Whatever came into his way was destroyed - nothing left. I placed a cache in this burned-out, surrealistic ground in memory of this worldwide wellknowen place and put inside the cache a piece of the eyes that once showed us the infinity of space.

Mount Stromlo was reopened to the public in October 2003. The cache has therefore been relocated closer to the observatory. The cache location provides views of the observatory and the Murrumbidgee River corridor.
