This planet was hidden in the New York Public Library (the big one on Fifth Avenue in New York City). My great grandfather was the director of the library from 1909-1934, so it seemed like a natural fit to place the planet there. You’d think that a library would be full of book stacks and therefore places to hide a planet — not so much! It took the better part of an hour to find a suitable place.

Jean-Pierre gave an infinity to Fahima Vorgetts to hide somewhere in this school. The domes are made in Afghanistan and the schools are ready for use in one week. She uses local labor and all the materials are made and purchased in country.

The planet was, finally, hidden at Shukdra Monastery in Bumthang, Bhutan at 8,800 feet above sea level on October 1 2009. The site seemed appropriate as it is one of the places that Guru Rimpoche, Padmasambhava in Sanskrit, hid esoteric teachings in the 8th century. Those teachings have yet to be found: The only marker for the place is a footprint and handprint of the guru left in the rock.
No photos are permitted inside the monastery, perched on a cliff high above the Jakar Valley, but here is a picture of the place.
