Find the hidden message in the first three constellations based on the clues provided by the others.

  • $\begingroup$ I am guessing that each bezier control point represents a letter, so the first (red) message is a 4 letter word that might start with s. $\endgroup$ – Daedric Jan 3 '17 at 7:40

    $\begingroup$ Is that your signature in the bottom right corner? If so, can you edit your post to make that clearer? I apologize for the deletion earlier - it seemed to be from an ongoing competition, and those puzzles are banned here. $\endgroup$ – Deusovi Jan 6 '17 at 11:01

Which logically rearranges to:


The trick:

Each 'turning point' of a curve is assigned a letter. Specific locations within the square have letters assigned. I'm just having trouble working out where that center curve actually goes to, as the curves don't always quite reach the same turning point, it just seems to be general locale that is assigned to a letter.


Humankind has received a subliminal message to . . .

. . . S A V E   E A R T H   M O T H E R . . .

. . . and to illustrate TheGreatEscaper’s solution.

This puzzle is so neatly presented and solidly clued, it really doesn’t require more explanation.

So our crackerjack graphologists had time to authenticate the signature.


Gotta love the cosmic imagery and — conscientious as well — messagery.
The secret message states the truly difficult puzzle.

  • $\begingroup$ Thank you for an attractive opportunity, @Dharmesh! (I Also suspect that your actual template resembles a spiral galaxy even more than shown here.) $\endgroup$ – humn Jan 9 '17 at 20:31
