Hidden numbers on Sunda Trench page
Well done to Puffinin for this find tonight. Does it have any relevance? You decide?
I have darkened the screengrab to show the numbers better.
Update 03:58:- People have asked where this can be seen. It is very very faint on the Sunda Trench website on Sam's laptop. In the right hand corner.
Update 04:26:- Thanks to thebruce for a higher quality image below.
Update 05:00:- It appears some of the people in chat (too many names to remember) have figured out that we could have a link to the poem found yesterday.
The first lines of the poem are:-
When I heard the learn’d astronomer;
When the proofs, the figures, were ranged in columns before me;
When I was shown the charts and the diagrams, to add, divide, and measure them;
So the proofs and figures have been ranged in columns for us on the Sunda page.
We seen the charts and diagrams and added and divided them.
We now just need to measure them. But what do we need to measure?
