    Very fun puzzle! The clues for MAGMA
    39A MAGMASomeone recently released a video shot from a drone as it crashed into a volcano in Iceland. This substance likely melted that poor little drone's camera
    and ERNE
    45A ERNEPhiladelphia or Seattle could've named their football teams after this and kept all of the same logos, but I guess it just didn't quite have the same ring to it
    were both hilarious but threw me off a little - I was trying to find a lava eagle constellation or something 馃槀
    • Pixlate 馃12:00聽路聽17 days ago
      Damn, lucky guess for the meta. I have no idea how to actually do it. Something to do with how every starred entry has an A? Fun puzzle nonetheless!

        If you'd like a full answer explanation, shoot me an email at PandorasBlocksWMC[at]gmail[dot]com! Thanks for solving!
      • C64 11:31聽路聽17 days ago
        I like that multiple answers are accepted, but I was a dope and entered two versions at once and had it marked wrong.
        • Pandora's Blocks Weekly Meta Crossword constructor聽路聽17 days ago
          Thanks for letting me know. I've now set it up so that if you enter both versions at once, it should be correct.
          • C64 11:31聽路聽17 days ago
            Noice!
        • Abide 11:33聽路聽16 days ago
          Very cool, Will! (I would think most places would have your size...)
          • Doc 17:28聽路聽15 days ago
            Amazing construction. I had a hunch about the answer from the get-go but took a while to sort out how to get there.
