Downtown Orlando has many parks and lakes sprinkled throughout. Lake Davis is located in the Delaney Park neighborhood, just south of downtown proper. Many ducks and other birds call this lake home. Be sure to bring some bird seed to share while you enjoy the scenery (no bread, please).

To find this microbox, visit Lake Davis's northern side. Find the number 1003. Across the street (lakeside) is a large oak tree. You will have to reach Hyer to find what you are looking for.


About Shooting Stars: A "falling star" or a "shooting star" has nothing at all to do with a star! These amazing streaks of light you can sometimes see in the night sky are caused by tiny bits of dust and rock called meteoroids falling into the Earth's atmosphere and burning up. The short-lived trail of light the burning meteoroid produces is called a meteor. Meteors are commonly called falling stars or shooting stars. If any part of the meteoroid survives burning up and actually hits the Earth, that remaining bit is then called a meteorite.
