Space Game: Where in the Solar System is Destination One? (day 3)

Pssst Space Bloggers!

Don’t look now, but we may not be alone out here at Destination One! I just spotted a strange looking vehicle with wings in orbit around–Hold on, I’m getting skyped… You say what?… You’re from where?… No kidding!

Space Bloggers, we’re in luck. Someone who calls herself ‘Nasa’ claims to have a picture of the spaceship. Can you see it on your screens?

Hmmm.  Whoever’s flying that ship must be pretty good.  I mean, its got to be tricky getting into orbit around something as hot and fast moving as Destination One. (That’s why I generally travel by internet!)

Anyway, the word is it’s some sort of ‘messenger’ from Earth. And it turns out it just got here last week – on St. Patrick’s Day! Who knew? What were the chances we’d be at Destination One the very same week the first Earth vessel dropped into orbit? Cool!

Now does anyone know where we are?  Well, let us all in on it – quick!

Note to newcomers: Feel free to jump in any time. Just be sure to check back to ‘day 1′ to find all the clues. For more info,  click on ‘Space Game Rules’ in the menu bar at the top of the page.

    Is it cheating if we do a web search? :)

    • It’s absolutely okay to do web searches. Just be sure that the sites you’re reading are reliable. NASA (aka Nasa) is always a good place to go, as is The Nine Planets, and most planetarium and university sites. And since you raised the point, I think I’ll add a page to SpaceBlog listing great sites to check for information. Thanks for the idea, LambsyDivy!
