Expedition[edit]

I was near Hannover's main train station today to listen to a talk, so I took the opportunity to go Geohashing afterwards.

Ahlten is only 12 train-minutes away from there, and from Ahlten's train station it was a 20-minute walk to the Geohash.

It was quite cold. According to Google, the temperature in Ahlten was "2°C, feels like 0°". Not a frozen Geohash yet. I wonder how Google measures how warm it feels.

I've been to Ahlten previously, to visit 2015-02-18 52 9. Back then I noticed that some of the streets have cool astronomical names, and this time the Geohash was right next to the best one, Saturnring. Other names include Marsstraße, Jupiterring, Neptunring, Plutoweg, Nordstern and Milchstraße. There also are the strangely-named Merkurring and Venusring. Nothing for Earth, Uranus or asteroids that aren't considered planets by Illinois politicians. The last time I was here it was around midnight, and today it is after dark too. It seems that I never see Ahlten by day, but at least I'm able to see stars here.

Like I wrote, the Geohash was located near Saturnring, on the field behind it to be precise. I located the coordinates and went back to the train station, from where I went back to Hannover.
