Clay's "Pic of the Day!" Should be no #RR's for awhile...I have "refreshed my stock!" Search away Tweeps! NASA is counting on your skills.

C'mon; you know you love solving these "mysteries!" And I am grateful! It is indeed the Uzbekistan & Turkmenistan boarder near Druzhba, northeast of the Caspian Sea! Good job! NASA loves you guys!
Well, it's nice to know that the time spent is actually useful to someone. :)
That „funny“ lake is Kapraz-Kala, the river from left Amu Darya, the city Gazojak.
@pamkstewart Occasionally trusting yr own eyes is better. @sweetgazer1 Guess, Clay will make us the joy of lots of such „wrong“ coords pics now …
@pamkstewart Time interval between pics is correct, change in coords should be reconstructible.
Are you @pc0101 saying the change in coords between pics in a sequence should be fairly accurate?
Yes, but these coords put it half way between California and Hawaii...more than a few miles off. :-o
It's 2:30am my time, neurons burning, cudn't find the bloody place, now I see, due to wrong coords..
One misplaced image identified could be used for re-calculating sequences but not enough human resources for that!
Accidental manipulation or long-time non use of a camera lead to such errors, often not noticed for entire sequences of hundreds of pics.
Well then apparently they need a better way of doing it...
Coords are calculated using EXIF time of exposure. Error of 1 sec = 5 miles off; 2 mins = 600 miles!
The coords in the cat are just totally off.
Nicely done. I had just found the location of ISS015-E-12755, (46.185306°, 73.822430°) So I was in the area.
Clay u can tell NASA I want credit for this 1, pts were WAY off, 8th graders could have done better!
It's Uzbekistan & Turkmenistan boarder by Druzhba, Uzbekistan ~ 41.150985, 61.425078...
@PC0101 I got it down to a lake! Woohoo. Any luck!
I'm glad I'm not the only one scratching my head at JSC... if we find this, they should hire us, geez
NASA is counting on us as they have proposed you pics where all the coords are scrap and JSC is lost too! A mutually rewarding quiz!
