Find the message embedded within the clue.



Ainen figured out the language of the message first and Sherlock3000 figured out the translation first. I stumbled upon an extra invite and awarded them both. Today's challenge took just under an hour and a half to figure out.


On the second car of the bus below an advertisement is faint text. The text is in the Armenian alphabet and reads Նրանք մեր մեջ and translates to "They are among us", which was the answer we were looking for!


The clue was embedded by Michael Serra. See him if you need help touching up any images. The original image was created by Google for the Niantic Project

Good luck!
