J. K. Rowling's Secret Street View

Following the completion of the seven Harry Potter books and eight films, J.K. Rowling has something new to announce. Even though this is not a new book, we have been informed it is something equally exciting.


As a teaser before the official announcement, ten letters have been hidden on the website below for you to find. To locate them you need to find ten sets of coordinates, enter them into the search box one set at a time, and take a look around.

This is the first coordinate: 42.523356,-70.890698

The rest will be revealed among nine other Harry Potter fan sites at intervals throughout the 15th and 16th of June 2011.  Find the coordinates, enter them on the site below and you could be one of the first to piece the word together.

(Please note - These letters are magic, therefore do not exist in the real world...)

Good luck to you all.

If you're having trouble finding the clue, simply zoom in on the map so you enter the street view!

I think the countdown discrepancies depend on file caching. If you have a cached copy of the right file rather than a live copy, then it gets the countdown wrong.

Ignore my last post – as that would slow the countdown rather than speed it up. My current theory is the clock on one of the proxy sites they are using is wrong, or their code doesn’t adjust properly for the different time zone it is in.

You should see owls on http://www.pottermore.com/ (you may need to reload the page if you have it cached).

pottershrink: Try the graphical front screen. They did an update of the front page but it froze some of the secondary pages such as the text-only version. They say normal service will be resumed at some point.
