In front of the Griffith Park Observatory are statues of six famous astronomers: Ptolemy, Copernicus, Kepler, Hipparchus, Herschel, and Newton. All face outward in a circle in different directions. The players had to know which of the six discovered ‘heaven’ in order to know which direction to run. Herschel discovered Uranus, which means ‘heaven’ in Greek. Walking in the direction Herschel faces pointed them at Mount Hollywood.
