That's only because the ecliptic is defined that way - referenced to Earth (0.0). I think in this case the "hint" is not helpful, and perhaps misleading. (Unless I do not understand the meaning of "sign", which is possible.) Thanks.

Interesting trivia, but the hint didn't help me at all. :-?

i had no chance on this one and the hint didn't help me.

The hint did not help me, did I just not get it the way you predicted? Overall an "Ok" teaser

How could anyone know that?(well,not me) :D

Good puzzle, but the hint seemed more random than anything.May as well have put 'Merry Christmas!' in the hint. ;)

For all of you privileged enough to be reading this comment, know that it is a record of my last words on this earth. Thanks, cnmne, you made my head explode! Seriously, though. That went way over my head, but it was interesting nonetheless :D

I wonder if anyone (including the author) would know this without looking it up?

:wink: You failed to provide All the information. A series can mean practically anything. A series of time, A series of place, which most of us thought you meant, A series of movement. Most people fear you, so no one would dare question you logic, mathematics or brilliance. Nice Teaser, as Usual.

The hint indeed did not help at all; the first thing I thought was astrology, and the signs associated with the planets. That was a dead end, as "Earth" in astrology is a type of sign, not a ruler of a sign. Even using it in the sense of which sign rises above the horizon of earth in what order doesn't help. The hint could have been a great deal clearer, but an interesting piece of information nonetheless

Hehe thought I'm good at astronomy but I failed this one. Didnt think of that inclination angle. I though they are mixed up based on their positions. Good and hard one. :D

im sorry but I didnt like this one. Not only was the hint useless it was also misleading. And orbit inclination??? Really?? I mean, how could anyone NOT working in NASA know this??But im sure a lot of people must have liked this. I just didnt.

I didn't like it either. It was very difficult because there was a huge lack of information needed to solve the teaser. The hint was completely random! What's my sign????? What does that mean and how does it help? :o :(
