Mars Hotspot

All of these are still only 99%:

 

&lat=-41.500000&lon=-57.500000

&lat=-41.750000&lon=-57.750000

&lat=-41.999999&lon=-57.999999

Anyone closer?

It must be a floating point error.

 

I would hazard one of the following:

&lat=-40.99999999&lon=-57

&lat=-41&lon=-56.99999999

&lat=-40.99999999&lon=-56.99999999

 

The first one should be it, since -57 is correct floating point-wise when it came up as a moon coordinate previously. -41 has never been the coordinate, so I suspect it should actually be -40.99999999

It's -41, 57 but with a floating point correction.  The longtitude never has a floating point correction.  Only the latitude does.

 

Try these:

 

&lat=-40.99999995&lon=-57

&lat=-40.99999996&lon=-57

&lat=-40.99999997&lon=-57

&lat=-40.99999998&lon=-57

&lat=-41.00000001&lon=-57

&lat=-41.00000002&lon=-57

&lat=-41.00000003&lon=-57

&lat=-41.00000004&lon=-57

&lat=-41.00000005&lon=-57

 

Also, because of the weirdness of floating point math, multiple locations will give 100% (and that's always the case every month, but usually people stop looking once one 100% spot is found cause there's really no reason to continue except for scientific purposes).

thanks for the great work!

 

(and yes, Wilcroft's coords were 100% for me)

I made several updates to the Moon & Mars hotspot finder:

  • Latitude -41 now corrects to -40.99999997 based on what we discovered from May 2017's Mars hotspot
  • 34 of the possibilities have been eliminated based on March 2017's hotspots.  There are now 1282 possibilities total instead of 1316.
  • Added all observed hotspots up to May 2017
  • Minor probability update

 

Get the latest version here:

You'll have to save a copy (File -> Make a copy...) to use it.  And you'll have to give it a few seconds to calculate after entering your test points.

Not that anybody cares, since I haven't been the driver of this train for a while now, but I've deleted and won't be coming back.

 

Peace.
