Congratulations to Becky, who not only beat last week’s skyline by identifying it as Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, but did so quickly and efficiently. Indeed, both satellite and skyline were of the same location.

Well done becky! I thought for sure I’d have you stumped last week!

This week, we have the same rules as usual.

#1. Identify the SKYLINE.
#2. Determine if it is the same location as THE SATELLITE IMAGE.
#3. If it isn’t the same location, identify the location of the satellite image.

Good luck!

    I still have no idea, so I’m going to make a wild guess. Skyline: Montreal?

    KOBENHAVN!!!!! :-D

    i have no idea what the skyline is.

    Wow. That was lucky.

    I didn’t have any clue on the satellite photo, and I tried googling for “star-shaped island” and that came up negative….

    So then I just decided, “hmm, I think this in Europe”, and I guessed a city… and my first guess was correct. I don’t know what possessed me to guess that city first…

    I still have no clue on the skyline (and I doubt I will figure it out).

    Aw, she beat me to it! It wasn’t there jsut a few minutes ago!

    don’t feel bad, she (like me) spent 8 weeks living in Copenhagen, living, learning, and loving the world that is Denmark.

    Lil’ bit o’ trivia:
    the “star shaped island” is called the Kastellet. It’s a military complex that is now open to the public. I thought it was a bit barren inside, though from the sky it looks way hardcore.

    The “national icon” pointed out in my earlier comment is the little mermaid statue.

    As much as a tiny statue of a Hans Christian Andersen character surrounded by throngs of japanese tourists was entertaining…I wasn’t all that impressed with it. However, the Gefion Fountain, located a stones throw from the “national icon,”…amazing.

    Just looking at a few pictures from my trip there makes me miss it intensely…

    Thanks for bringing it back, MikeD!! :-)

    Is that the spaceship from Independence Day looming in the left corner of the skyline?

    Shaun McQuiad I do beleive that you are correct on that one. If Hollywood has taught me anything it is that Aliens are bad news. Lets take a further look into this. Aliens from the movie “Alien” burst through your chest killing you (bad news) and then when they grow up they eat you (bad news). The Predator hunts us and uses our skulls as trophies (bad news). The Extraterestrial, A.K.A. E.T., he formed a psychic bond with Elliot causing Elliot to get deathly ill when E.T. was stupid enough to sleep in a gutter (bad news). Those people from Cocoon slept in our swimming pool in gross probably alien bacteria infected shells (bad news). Name one time aliens did anything good for Humanity.

    The ewoks helped out Luke, Leia, and Han. But that one’s kind of tricky, because technically the ewoks were the natives and the Rebellion team were aliens on that planet.

    Ford Prefect saved Arthur Dent, and Zaphod saved Trillian from the destruction of earth (by other aliens, damn.)

    Spock, Worf, and all those dudes (but then there are the old-style Klingons, Romulans, and the Borg, damn.)

    This is a hard argument to counter. It must be true.
