Players of Niantic’s Ingress game around the world are chatting up an unusual alignment of coded maps on the eve of the release of The Alignment: Ingress novella by New York Times bestselling author Thomas Greanias and adventurers Hank Johnson and Conrad Yeats.

An old Muslim painting appears to be a coded terrestrial map, according to annotations by “exotic matter” tracker Hank Johnson.

A chart of the constellation Virgo, meanwhile, adapted from an unusual alternative rendering of the so-called “Virgin in the Sky” by the late children’s book author H.A. Rey, appears to be a coded celestial map from astroarchaeologist Conrad Yeats.

How the terrestrial and celestial maps “align” has turned into a heated source of speculation across the World Wide Web.  Both maps are revealed in their entirety in the novella The Alignment: Ingress, which boasts a book cover that itself was recently discovered to be encoded.

The Alignment: Ingress will go on sale for $2.99 on Tuesday, April 2 and is now available for pre-order on the Google Play store.
