I agree. That is my first impression too.

Close. But no.

a fish of sorts.

possibly a "star fish" (considering the title of the thread).

Sundial shadow?

none so far. SCSW, explain your reasoning. It's wrong, but knowing your reasoning could help people.

You're wrong. Please use spoilers. I can't decide what's worse: giving a wrong answer in brazen Caps Locks without a spoiler, or a right answer without a spoiler.

The sundial's shadow extends from the right at dawn (sunrise - sun's on the right). Same for evening, just on the other side. It extends straight from the sun.

Nothing in there that helps get to the answer. I see what you are saying, but that doesn't explain the line about the ocean.

etymology plays in this one.

by that logic...

it could possibly be the reflection or shadow of anything in the water (such as a mountain island).

but that logic is only proper if facing to the south (shadow being to the "right of dawn" so the sun is to your left, shadow extending to your right). facing any other direction it doesn't work..

This answer is the closest. Nice guess.

But why did you go so far as saying the North Pole?

The southern lights.

The south pole is to the right at dawn and the left in the evening, if you are facing the sun both times. The auroras come straight from the sun in that they are caused by solar wind. Also, they occur over the magnetic poles. I think the southern magnetic pole wanders around in the ocean south of Australia and very near the coast of Antarctica, making it stranded in the ocean.

the international dateline

as the earth spins from west to east, the dateline would be "right" of dawn (unless you are standing on it, but given the ending part of this post, you can't easily do that). in the evening (not yet midnight) the dateline is still to the left of the 24 hour period.. so technically to the "left" of evening.

stranded in the ocean.... the dateline runs through the oceans, and not across land.

To answer you question, I figured the North Pole is in the middle of the Artic Ocean. I suppose it could be the Artic Ice Flow or whatever that chunck of ice is called.

The whole sentence reads from the right of dawn. I interpreted it as the shadow extending from the right to the left.

Not that it matters anyways. Etymology. Hmm...

here's why:

I'm right from the dawn,

left from the evening, -the n in 'evening' is one space left from the far right,-"left from the evening"

straight from the sun,

and stranded in the ocean.

So someone should start

a What Am I motion.

:D

The North Star could make sense too! I was also thinking it could be Polaris, but the "stuck in the ocean" threw me. If "ocean" is referring to space it could very well be the North Star (Polaris)

Your answer was close. After reading your reasoning for it, I see that it is a coincidence.

hint

This thing just looks like it's stranded in the ocean. And it's not a reflection or the north star.
