Based on the fact that the Queen's House is a fair distance from the planetarium and the time ball,I would say that the answer would properly be Greenwich Park,covering almost 183 acres,southeast of the London city center.

Al of the questions have been answered.

Scifan, you gave the correct answer to the one outstanding question, so the baton is in your hands,so to speak. I attach some other pictures of the park. One I could have used as stage 3 of the reveal.

Re Harrison's Planetarium, I took some people there to enjoy a show in a really state-of-the-art place. Guess what, the computer driving the show crashed twice. So we enjoyed a rerun of the show,much to the presenter's embarrassment!

I love the juxtaposition of the moon and the midday ball.

That would be the "Rocket Jets" spinner style ride at Tomorrowland at Disneyland, California,
United States of America.

The attraction opened in July 1967 and closed in January of 1997. It replaced an earlier 1950s era ride called "Astro-Jets."

A similar ride called "Star-Jets" opened in 1983 at Disneyland Tokyo.

Well this is rather embarrassing as I have no suitable pictures in my iPad or iPhone, to mount a copyright free challenge.

I offer this ... And if it's to outside the rules, or obscure, someone else can post.

Two summers ago, I found this ....

washed up on the north shore of Lake Erie. That's on the Ontario, Canada side of the lake.

I'm certain you know what it is. And because of where I found it, I'm certain it was part of a large shipment being taken to a nearby facility.

What's in the picture and what facility was it destined for?

I've asked Skimonkey to monitor while I catch some winks. I'll be back in 5 hours.

It's heading towards the 3 hour mark without any responses to Admiral's latest challenge. I will be heading to bed myself. Should any of you like to play, Admiral will be back here in ~ 2 hours to further assist/provide clues to his latest challenge. Good luck!

Thank you,

Skimonkey

It's a chunk of coal from one of the many shipwrecks on lake Erie over the years.It may have been part of a shipment heading for the Nanticoke coal fired generating station at Nanticoke,Ontario.

Your turn,Admiral.
