Geocachers reach new heights with Planetary Pursuit

It’s been quite the expedition navigating beyond the geocaching universe, caching on every planet to try to become an Official Space Explorer. In fact, over 44,500 geocachers collected over 500 points on their Friend League to reach Pluto, earning the Official Space Explorer souvenir!

In honor of the nine planets (counting dwarf planet, Pluto!) we’re sharing nine fun stats and photos from Planetary Pursuit from around the world and surrounding galaxies!
