Astro Trivia Quiz for June

#1

Post by Raymondhow »

Greetings excellent TSSers, another trivia quiz for you. Here’s the link:
https://forms.gle/nu4ZQFWnhuWRDLiG8

For the short answer questions, spelling does not matter. Misspelled answers will have scores adjusted.

Remember:
1. No online research allowed, your own pure brain only!
2. On multiple choice questions, feel free to guess. You may get lucky.
3. If you have a comment about a question, please do NOT give away the correct answer!
4. Please do not repeat the quiz, at least not until after I announce the Champs sometime next week.

Enjoy!

Looks like I may have been one of the first.
Enjoyable quiz - 13/20, but that should increase to 15 (I added a space after a numerical answer, which wasn't recognised as correct).

OK, got 16/20 this time, passing score, I think, as opposed to the failure last month.

Lots of fun again,

Obviously questions relating to things north of the equator are not my forte, even though I have lived in the USA. Oh well. 10/20.
