If you know what this is, and where it's located, you could win a prize in the CNET Road Trip Picture of the Week challenge.

Update (Wednesday, 12:55 a.m. PST): The answer to last week's challenge--which 38 people got--is the Allen Telescope Array, currently the world's first large-scale telescope meant for the full-time use of the Search for Extra-Terrestrial Intelligence (SETI) project. It is located in Hat Creek, California. Thanks to all who played last week, and to everyone, please come back Thursday for this week's challenge.

Those are some funny-looking objects, aren't they? And it's hard to tell how tall they are as well. So what are they? And where are they located? If you know, you could win a prize in the CNET Road Trip Picture of the Week challenge.

If you have those answers, please e-mail them to me no later than 6 p.m. PDT Friday (to daniel--dot--terdiman--at--cnet--dot--com, and PLEASE include "Picture of the Week" in the subject line). I'll choose a winner at random from among everyone who sends in both pieces of the correct answer. Please forgive me if you don't hear from me if you're not the winner. I get dozens of responses.

Also, I've turned off comments because some people have been posting the correct answers there. I hate to shut down discussion, but I want you to figure out the answer on your own.

One caveat: No individual can win more than two prizes.

Also, for everyone who played regularly during Road Trip 2010, please note that this is the sixth of the weekly Picture of the Week challenges. With Road Trip 2010 officially finished--and therefore no more new Road Trip pictures--the challenge is now taking place weekly, each Thursday, and the photos could come from anywhere, not just Road Trip 2010 locations. So, please have fun playing today, and then come back each Thursday.

For most of the summer, Geek Gestalt was on Road Trip 2010. After driving more than 18,000 miles in the Rocky Mountains, the Pacific Northwest, the Southwest and the Southeast over the last four years, I drove 5,266 miles this summer looking for the best in technology, science, military, nature, aviation and more throughout the American Northeast.
