Space Game! Where in the Solar System is Destination Five? (day 1)

Hey Space Bloggers!

Ready for the next puzzling adventure? Hold on to your touch pads cuz we’re taking off! I’m afraid it’s a long way to Destination Five, so we’ll just have to be patient…yawn…finger drum…tra-la-la…Okay, that’s it! I can’t stand it any longer. I’m taking a look. First I’ll put the infrared color filters over the lens of our onboard telescope. That way we can see variations in the atmosphere, that is if this next place even has an atmosphere. Almost ready…focusing…Oh, my gosh! Have a look!

Well, I guess we know now. This place definitely has some air! I can’t believe how clear the layers are. Hold on. I’ll come around and see if we can get a side view… Not bad!
