SOLVED: Fragment Nine: Galifanx


Going off of that could be a lot of things, Mantis Shrimp can see colours we can’t, pit vipers can detect heat signatures like infrared, and microscopes can see things the eye can’t see.


Hey, as far as the Titans…I’m sure somebody has mentioned this before, but I wonder if it’s talking the race of Titans?

Could also be something to do with Saturn, given its moon is Titan.


Maybe it’s an old word for telescope. How about perspicillum?


And Saturn was a Titan in Roman Myth. Although I may be off on that.


Monoceros would make sense for “sees what we cannot”, it’s supposedly a constellation that’s hard to see with the naked eye. But not sure how a unicorn fits into giant, titan, dragon etc.


Closest we’ve come is a Titan named Crius, the ruler of constellations.


Don’t mean to break the train of thought, but the Prime Meridian’s disc has been updated, complete with the sign for Jupiter!


Maybe, like someone said, it’s a specific telescope like the good ole Hubble?


Right, except everything seems to be an old word.


The one at the observatory itself is the Great Equatorial Telescope

This one was mentioned before and seemingly unconfirmed, but mentioning again just in case.


Well, we’ve got two of the traits, then - Saturn being a Titan and a (gas) giant. Not sure about the other 3 though. :sweat:


Telescopium is the modern latin translation of telescope


The largest on earth is the Great Magellan.


Sirius A is the brightest star in the sky.

Lies between Orion and Draco.

That’s 3 out of 4. Sorta.

It’s a part of Canis Major or Canis Majoris.


Maybe it’s the name of a great astronomer? Such as Galileo?


Well, Crius was a Titan, Draco a dragon, and Orion was known as “the giant.” From what I can tell, they all can’t be seen at the same time.

EDIT: Cruis’ constellation is Aries. So Aries, Draco, and Orion.

EDIT 2: So I pulled out my star guid app and Aries, Draco, and Orion are pretty much in a straight line across the sky. Don’t know how this helps us though.


@Chordie I’m on my phone and can’t really keep up right now. The top lost should be a wiki anyone can edit though. I won’t be able to do much til morning. Sorry.


Dude, no worries :smiley:


Sirius A is the brightest star in the sky.


All great light combined could be about lens refraction, an achromatic lens in a telescope focusing the light onto the mirror like a laser. I’m just throwing stuff at the wall to see what sticks at this point.
