Geocache Description:

The surroundings of Protasovo and Ivanovskoe in the Moscow Region have always attracted extraterrestrial visitors to the Earth, according to local folklore. Over the last 15 years, the “Protasovo anomalous zone” has experienced an unprecedented UFO wave.

In one instance, the landing of a strange cube-shaped object was observed by the locals, who even spotted two aliens with big eyes getting out and heading towards a nearby uninhabited house. In another, three hunters fired upon a “saucer” that was hovering over them. Without suffering any visible damage, the saucer soared upwards and disappeared. One female eyewitness reported that as she was walking home one day down the road, a cigar-shaped object followed her for several minutes scaring her to death. According to Roman D., an agricultural college student, he found something that looked like a UFO crash site not far from his home. He heard mysterious voices asking him if he wanted to travel on board a UFO ship. Roman said no, as he had to prepare his term paper and was pressed for time. Then the strangers asked him what the term paper topic was and told him to come back next day at 6:32 AM to the same place. Roman did as he was told and found a scholar quality paper – printed out and ready to be submitted – under a spruce tree. The Protasovo area is remarkable for a high concentration of fungi – both mushrooms and polypores. One great polypore – a saucer-shaped growth on the side of a birch tree (see picture #2) – contained a message with a code:
Coords Teams of ufologists, cyberneticist and semioticians tried to crack the code, but it was beyond their expertise. Some suggested that the mysterious signs might indicate the location of a UFO landing site. Everyone interested can examine the contents of the polypore (after the message was removed, the inside of the fungus was filled in with some trinkets). Welcome! The coordinates above will get you to where you can park. This cache is cross-posted on a Russian geocaching site (
