Earth Science


The science teacher was teaching a class on earth science and lecturing on map reading.
After explaining about latitude, longitude, degrees, and minutes the teacher asked, “Suppose I asked you to meet me for lunch at 23 degrees, 4 minutes north latitude and 45 degrees, 15 minutes east longitude, where would we meet?”
After a confused silence, a voice volunteered, “I don’t know the place, but I guess you’d be eating alone.”

  1. What place is 23 degrees 4 minutes north latitude and 45 degrees 15 minutes east longitude?
    This location is in the middle of the Saudi Arabian desert, approximately 500 mi north-east of Mecca.
    Even the teacher may have trouble getting to that lunch date!
