Possible “LOST” Island Locations in Google Earth

Lost location in Google EarthThe popular TV show LOST, about the survivors of a plane crash on a remote island believed to be in the Pacific ocean, has not yet revealed the location of the island in the fictional story. That hasn’t stopped fans from speculating. The JoshMeister LOST blog has posted his speculations about the possible locations and created a file showing the possible locations for viewing in Google Earth (if you need to download Google Earth click here). Josh’s speculations show one location between Pago Pago and the Cook Islands, and other locations near Jarvis Island or the Kirbati islands. Read his post for details using descriptions and clues from various episodes on how he arrived at the estimated locations.

    I think they’re in Purgatory “a place or condition of temporal punishment”.

  2. Well anon, considering the writers have debunked purgatory a billion times, you might be right.

  3. I can confirm that the ‘Lost’ island is in a parallel universe known as ‘Drawn out, tedious and irritating story lines for no reason, other than network advertising revenue’, where each and every day people do not communicate directly, where Person ‘A’ asks Person ‘B’ for something. Person ‘B’ looks confused and avoids eye contact. Person ‘A’ then asks again. Person ‘B’ replies “What for”, or “Why” Person ‘A’ then gives a reason other than the real reason why they want it. Person B gives Person A whatever they asked for but has a suspicious look in their eye as they do so.
    I have watched all 3 series so far and that is 2 seasons too many, and if you have not already guessed it THEY ALL DIED in the crash !

  4. They all did something bad at one point in time, which is why “Jacob” brought their plane to the island, which is underwater, by the way anyone notice in the commercials there is a city in the water reflection? If they redeem themselves by undoing their bad deeds, they may leave if they wish. There is a chemical on the island that cures ANY desease. Such as Rose’s sickness, and Jin’s sterile dis advantages. That’s why the DHARMA people want the island back.

  5. I’m a huge fan of this awesome show and i own and have watch every episode at least twice. Yiu may notice that people on the island have been able to come and go as they please. Juliet came by sub marine and it’s how they were able to leave until it was blown up.They are also able to watch people on the outside world. This is definate proof that these people are not dead or in purgatory.Also this would be too lame and easy for people as brilliently minded as J.J Abrams to come up with, I’m unsure where they are but i am 100 per cent they are alive. Another thing is that people have died on the island and in the plane crash. How can people die twice lolz how can people not see that.
