I'm back from my mini-break, back from diving in the Caribbean, rested and relaxed...
... and immediately heading out on the road again to teach search classes. I'm traveling to DC to bring a bit of SearchResearch there. Stay tuned for more Challenges coming from that part of the world. (And not to worry--we'll have Challenges from Cozumel as well. In just a bit.)
First, I wanted to focus in a bit on finding "unusual perspectives," that is, finding answers to questions through images in ways that you might not have thought about.
Today I have three questions, all of which can be answered, but the usual searches might not quite work, so you'll have to try something a bit different.
1. I was in Los Angeles (CA) the other day, and I happened to notice something unusual attached to the back of each letter on the famous "Hollywood" sign. Once you see it, of course they'd need to have this on the back of each letter--but I'd never though about it before. What's on the backside of each of the letters?
2. The aurora borealis (or aurora australis) is one of the most amazing sights on the planet. When you look at it, you see vast sheets of colored, translucent drapes moving across the sky. In appearance, it's just colored lights--but when seen from above, what shape are the Northern (or Southern) Lights? Can you find a picture that shows the overall, planet-wide shape of the aurora?
3. We know that some plants move to follow the sun. Can you find a video of a sunflower following the sun? How about some other plant? What do they do to follow the sun across the sky?
As always, be sure to tell us HOW you found the answer to the Challenge questions. (And what did NOT work out for you?)
