  • "Lost" number coordinates.

    Ok, this is a thread for all of you who watch the tv-series Lost.
    If you haven't seen it but want to, don't continue reading this. (best series around so you should want to)
    And if you haven't seen the 19th episode yet you should stop reading too.
















    As we all know, the numbers 4 8 15 16 23 42 are cursed.
    It has now been discovered that they are coordinates to a place in Nigeria (as you know, the drugsmugglers were from Nigeria).

    Latitude: 4.8151
    Longitude: 6.2342

    I've also read that the place itself is cursed by the locals.

    ohmygod i'm a LOST freak too!

    but the numbers are 4 8 15 16 23 42

    and for your coordiantes you typed : 4.815
    6.2342
    i think you missed the One between the four and the six,
    anyway if i'm right (IF..) then its puts us in central african republic

      Oh yeah sorry about that. It's 4.8151.
      And no it's in Nigeria. At least thats where I'm landing.

        If you take a look at this it clearly shows that the coordinates are not to madagascar but in the central african republic on the cameroon side.

        You may also enter the digits using the decimal coordinate method to achieve the central african republic location again.

            Lost was filmed in Hawaii, nothing close to the coordinates the numbers provide.

            The problem I have with using them as decimal coordinates (to get the Nigeria location), is that they're listed (both in the 'original' transmission, and written on the hatch) as distinct numbers, 4-8-15-16-23-42. So using 4.8151 etc seems a bit of a stretch ... although the coincidence with Nigeria is odd ...

            So I'd prefer using them as coordinate degrees, 4 degrees 8 minutes 15 seconds, etc, which gives you the uninteresting, middle-of-nowhere location in the Central African Republic.

            Frustrating as hell, and I love it!

              I dont acctually know what the coordinates are, but use the coordinates 4.8151 6.2342 to find the place in Nigeria or whatever, then try and find the exactly opposite coordinates on the other side of the world. It should turn out in Micronisia. So look there. I mean, Sydney to Australia, its the first place I looked anyway.

                if you use -4.815 and -162.342, it is about 1400 miles away from fiji on the flight path between sydney and LA in the south pacific!

                      Correct Conversion to Lat. & Long. -- Central African Republic

                      Looking at the numbers as two sets of three

                      4 8 15 16 23 42

                      It seems more natural to assume the latitude and longitude are represented in degree/minutes/seconds:

                      +4° 8' 15.00", +16° 23' 42.00"

                      Converting these to decimal coordinates:

                      Latitude: 4.137500 Longitude: 16.395000

                      and entering it in Google maps point to some remote part of the Central African Republic

                          The island never existed actually.. it is a man-made location under a giant dome in California...
