Chapter 5 Clue Hunt -- Cabin Lights

Hey All,

During today's Clue Hunt if you look carefully there is a set of bright lights on the roof that basically shine like stars. Are they just lights or do they really form a constellation?? Any ideas...??

Thanks to Carlo for sending in the screencap.

looks like the outline of an ship ;)

but i think it's just light..

andrea said...

don't think they're only lights..
they remind me a lot the "constellation" we found with the hidden numbers' diagram from the poem (do you remember?)

i think what's more important is that the overlay pix are now reversed...

http://oceanicworldairlines.com/2008/ i just found that and i just want to know if it's new or old??

They form the constellation "Orion". The 3 in a row along the centre of the roof that form a vertical line are known as "Orion's Belt".

It looks slightly disorientated though, although i'm still positive it's Orion.

Hope that helps.

There is amazing things in here

someone need to check this.

Aleksandra:
That site was created in October last year & will expire in November (you can check those things at whois.net). Lostpedia lists it as a hoax:

...whois.net of course tells you who has registered the site & further info. This one is clearly fake (but a nice one).
(Sorry for the double post)

three lights in a row must be very common. its unlikely its suppose to be orions belt, and i cant see how you can determine the rest of the constellation from the arrangement of the remaining lights. it looks nothing like orion to me.

SirDingyDang said...

To me, the lights to the left look like the big dipper, but what do I know? =)

tierXgoXrwar said...

They're most likely coordinates. On the left side (the three triangle stars), two of the lights correspond to very specific spots on land. They wouldn't have put a map on the ceiling if there wasn't a reason for that specific land mass being exactly there. I mean, you can definitely make out "Indonesia" by one of the land masses. I had the map out and was comparing, but I'm having a hard time figuring out where it matches up.

SirDingyDang said...

On second thought, and after doing some photoshop cross-comparison, it'd definitely NOT the big dipper. Still looks curious to me though. But we might just be trying to hard to find something =/

foxy_bebel said...

Well...if you ask me they look like marks, cuz the pics on the underlayer are something that looks like a map so the light would be like X or just like those pointy thing we use on maps to find locations!
but that's just me... soon you guys are finding out what they mean anyway.. so... just though on putting my 2 cents in

That's a different site you went to on Lostpedia musepsycho.
you went to www.oceanicwoldair.com
The other site is www.oceanicwoldairLINES.com
Check here, it used to be part of TLE.

I, too, think they match coordinates on a map. If the Black Rock sailed in the wrong direction, and the Christiane I is searching using coordinates from the captain's log, then perhaps the lights in the middle match the inverse of the coordinates from the Christiane's search grid, and the single light to the far right is the location of the Island.

If I knew more about GPS coordinates I would map this.

I'm pretty positive it is Orion as well:

Sunshine said...

Sorry, but I have to agree with Wu Li Master. I don't think it looks anything like Orion, other than the three stars in the middle.

Steff said...

The tattoo - STAR on Sam's arm may support this theory. Here is a screenshot:

I'm not totally convinced that it is Orion in the middle. But it if it is( i know this is thin but...) what is on the side of Orioin? GEMINI. Maybe this is a hint that there are multiple 815's, not neccessarily faked wreckage.

justashepard said...

I know this an odd reference, but Whoopi Goldberg just announced "not tonight, but soon on the show" that they were going to find "another 815"
Just thought that was interesting. If they only knew how hard you guys work to figure this all out. it's been fun, 30 more minutes.

justashepard said...

she announced it on "The View", sorry i was trying to hide that i was watching the view. I don't have cable though.

Kyle aka TheBookPolice said...

It's not Orion. It looks nothing like Orion.

They're map points. The correlation with the South Pacific underlay cannot be accidental.

Ryan said...

actually Taurus is next to Orion: They're fighting. if anything, the 3 stars on the left could be taurus, if the were horizontally flipped and compressed and rotated a slight bit. but i doubt that. the first and last sentances of this post are the only ones that you need to read

Ryan said...

(sorry if this is a double post but lmao@justashepherd... b/c now i'm actually watching the view
and i hate dr. phil!

travis said...

The lights on the far left match up with Bandar Seri Begawan, the capital of Brunei Darussalam, Ho Chi Minh City in Vietnam, and an island grouping off the coast of Indonesia.

justashepard said...

Ryan, gemini is on the other side of orion. Sorry about "the view" at least rosie odonnel isn't on anymore.

Ryan said...

woot! Juliet on the view!

Nakagod said...

I'm suprised no-one has commented on the island Sam mentions in the video diary. I had a look on Wiki and found a couple of interesting links here they are. Discuss if you want. the first link is the main link

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tanna_%28island%29

if you scroll down to the 2nd paragraph of culture and economy it mentions that the island is the centre of the john frum cargo cult.

This is the link describing what cargo cults are:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cargo_cult

This is the link describing who John Frum is (Jacob anyone?)

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jon_Frum

interesting reading I think

I stand corrected....it is not orion.
It is Pyxis (the compass) and its neighbors.
