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 doubt its Pottermore. I really do. Does NOT sound like Jo. If I know her, it’ll be something extremely vague and tricky, but also ingenius. What is the fourth letter?

Guys I understand:
The french’s site is the SIXTH letter in the teaser, and Snitch Sneeker has the eight letter. This helps, huh?

HPANA’s worked for me, but they didn’t say which number theirs was, so I’ve lost count…

How do you find the ones that don’t have a little pointer to click on? Do you just have to search the whole area? :)

If you type in a coordinate and the pointy thing doean’t appear, try refreshing your map and putting in the coordinate again. Worked for me. :)
