There are 2 figures that I can't decipher on this page:
1- the white symbol that looks like an arrow near the top of the page within the left hemisphere of the earth? I thought maybe it was a symbol for wind direction etc. but can't figure it out. it may not be a critical clue - it just bugs me that I can't decipher it. Anyone know what it's about?
2- the map of MDI showing the words "AL PAR" on the top right has a green line with red dashes in it. Anyone know what that line could indicate?
ana - I can't answer your first question. I've also wondered if it means wind direction. In the end, I think it's just an arrow, like so many others, and if it has any significance, it will be simply the direction it is pointing.
Re your second question, I think that section of the map, which I assume includes the words NATIONAL PARK, doubles as a sailboat sail for the boat that sits on the weather vane. The line of the weather vane becomes the sailboat mast with a flag on top, the yellow and orange striped/ red section is a billowing sail, and the map wedge part is the main sail of the boat - you can see the wooden boom under it. The red lines are batten pockets where they put wooden sticks to stabilize the sail. I'm not sure what the green line might be, maybe a fold in the sail?
The question I have regarding that area of the page is, what is that constellation in the upper right corner? I have found a similar match in Vulpeca - the fox, but it's not an exact match so I doubt that's it. All the other constellations on this page are exact. I've found some close matches for this one, but none that really fit. Does anybody know what it is?
