    I wish the forum supported strikethough text, it'd be helpful. Now, it looks like the word "planet" is confirmed acceptable as well.
    I'm going to resist updating the hunted object after my initial post (like I did yesterday and today) because I know it can confuse people. Safety is always my concern, and like I and others have mentioned before, it's just a pointless prize game... which I hope injects a little fun and interest on your rides. One thing about these mid-day updates is that I won't ever make it harder.

    Everyone please be careful out there!

    2/19/21 - Planet(s) - likeness or name of a specific planet or the word "planet"

    This is Earth. Or Earth after it is taken over by Bechtel who has turned all the oceans red. Nonetheless, planet Earth.

    2/19/21 - Planet(s) - likeness or word

    The American Geophysical Union Building has a representation of the solar system embedded in the sidewalk. It shows the planets and their relative orbits, including Pluto's eccentric path. The picture shows Pluto dipping inside Neptune's orbit

    Hi Carol,

    The only way that I know it was electric was that it was plugged in. I was lucky to see it being charged as I passed the open garage, or I wouldn't had a clue. And I didn't know that he changed the rules, I just took a chance on posting it before midnight. The things we do, lol, for this game.

    Outside my front door and as far as I can see are sheets of ice, so my bike is staying in the warmth and safety of the house. But today’s target has introduced an earworm that just won’t budge.

    So my offering to the hunt is The Planets, Op. 32: 4. Jupiter, the Bringer of Jollity by Gustav Holst which joyfully incorporates lots of jolly horn parts.

    Nice music and photos, but I'm pretty sure your find has to involve a bike ride.

    Yep! I knew I wouldn't recognize an electric vehicle or a hybrid without a big clue, so I went to literally every charging station in Bethesda to see what was plugged into it. And when the best that netted was a Tesla without a bike rack, I posted on NextDoor so that people would tell me where I could find other electric cars.

    I went for the planet Earth. This earth is located just off of Bartholomew Street in Alexandria.

    2/19/21 - Planet(s) - likeness or name of a specific planet or the word "planet"

    I was hoping to find someone that still owned a Saturn, but no luck. So...get ready for this!!

    Here is my likeness of Mars (which is roundish and reddish). This even references four features from Mars!!
    And the fact that we just had a recent Mars landing, makes this even better!

    Southern Highlands
    Tharsis Rise
    Olympus Mons
    Phaethontis quadrangle
