Read that it was here, came out here this morning and found it where y'all left it. Easy to spot, not much in the way of grass around it, but then again, it's "winter" right now.

I took pics while I was out there, but it looks like the first finder did an outstanding job. However, today I had to hunt and peek through the grass.

Control Text

  • The horizontal coordinates were scaled from a topographic map and have an estimated accuracy of +/- 6 seconds.
  • The orthometric height was determined by differential leveling and adjusted by the National Geodetic Survey in June 1991.
  • The geoid height was determined by GEOID99.
  • The dynamic height is computed by dividing the NAVD 88 geopotential number by the normal gravity value computed on the Geodetic Reference System of 1980 (GRS 80) ellipsoid at 45 degrees latitude (G = 980.6199 gals.).
  • The modeled gravity was interpolated from observed gravity values.
