Answer: What In The World Happened Here? CXIV: (114)



"Gold is so 1840s out here. Meteorites are the new treasure."

Mom Stumbles Onto Meteorite Worth About $20,000



And, yes, NASA used an airship in the search.

And it was extra fun to stymie AlanK for a few days, knowing that his mother had actually witnessed the event. WITWHH posters need that delicious streak of cruelty!.

Yes, it's all part of the fun.

But Salty beat you to 116 by half an hour (I think).

True. I saw Salty's answer right after seeing the puzzle and knew right away. But I got the answer from him, fair and square.

I should have posted this on the anniversary, not so very long ago.

What In The World Happened Here? CXX (120):

This is our first guest post. I found a wonderful pano where something very significant happened. I emailed the photographer, asking for permission to post an image. She graciously rose to the occasion & asked me to post in her name. She & her husband like our little game.Thank you Eva!

When the puzzle is solved, I will post a link to her website.

This is the equirectangular image, from which the pano was made. Apparently, it contains a lot of redundant information which is used to construct the scrollable panorama.

The WITWHH view counter reaches half a million and we put on a special event. Not for everybody in the world, though.

Alan has the location, and the date is warm, but could be a lot warmer. Actually looking for an event here. You may have seen it once before, but you will never see it again.

WAGGA has the right audience, and we could conceivably make that number in time.

Not for everyone, but if you climb after Alana and before EJ, you'll have a front row seat, and you'll see more than most of us.

Well, the picture reminds us that Thursday is the 176th anniversary of the birth of the only person to discover a chemical element that was somewhere other than Earth.

Jimmy and the Banksia Man saw it once, as well, but not from Whitney. And we sprinted over the half-million mark. That's 360 views for each post.

Wagga has it, so the celebration is on. Would the Smithsonian Hut do for a camera obscura?

Clever - set up a straw dog:



Whitney misses the eclipse.
