Approximate time to solve: 10 hours, 30 minutes

As usual, users went to http://alphalupi.bungie.net/ and got past the gate using the chart below:

[Note: (x, y) visibility limited. (u, v) analysis might prove useful. v-resolution particularly limited.]

Active Baselines:

Frequency gaps detected. Additional global observatories required.

Your node will remain active for 5 minutes, but may be reactivated as necessary.
Distributed, synchronous effort required.


As in previous days, the Fourier transform method was used. This time around, ARG participants used automation to access the site to create the "point" in the Geomask, and then used the MatLab program to automate the Fourier process.

Within approximately 10 hours and 30 minutes, Sunburned Goose posted the URL for the solution of the day's puzzle:

Quote:
You see history hidden between the
barren rocks and within the high acid
clouds. You see ruin emerging from
where it has always been, ready to claim
its birthright.

Sunlight is starved. The fierceness is
chilled and thinned, made sweet again. A
new ocean emerges, thick and salty and
hot, from springs and geysers that drench
the dead ground.

You wonder: will this world's second birth
be its finest? You draw deep inside,
seeking direction, truth...

But all you have are the riddles of your
own intentions.
