Observatory PuzzlesEdit

Observatories will always have the same flavor text and puzzle together, and are generally solved by following the pattern of rotation:

The solution for the Gek Observatory puzzle 2 is obtained as follows:

9183 - 1839 - 8391 - ****

Since 9183 becomes 1839, you should take the left-most digit and place it to the right, so 1839 becomes 8391.

This is called a rotation to the left.
