Treebeard's Stumper
12 March 1999

Kidnapped

You're taken in the night and flown to a strange city. When your captors finally remove your blindfold, you find yourself locked in a small room with no windows. There is only a narrow skylight above. You notice that the Little Dipper is higher than normal in Santa Barbara, about halfway between the horizon and straight up. After a while, the stars fade away as sunrise approaches. You can tell it's a big city by the noise. "How odd," you say. "At home in the spring, the sun rises at about 6 a.m., but my watch only says 4:00!" Where are you?
