    We’ve put together a quiz for our local society, but I thought people here may also be interested in having a go.

    The answers will be given and discussed in our online meeting on Thursday 21st January at 8pm on our YouTube channel, but I will post the answers here subsequently:

    Thanks! I appreciate the work that went into this. You offered a good range of challenges, easy to difficult, across the field of knowledge in astronomy. It was nicely done. I am going to pass it along to our executive committee. If we use any of it, I will be sure to credit Nottingham and let you know.

    We’ve since learnt at least one of the questions has an error; there is a Mare Australe on Mars as well as on the Moon. The number of principal stars in the asterism of Cepheus is also being debated… 48 unambiguous questions out of 50 isn’t bad I don’t think!
