Proper tough quiz.

@KathyNS @pixelsaurus @Gfamily
Hi Kathy,
Judging by results, this quiz appears to be much harder than I thought when I was setting it.

Your 6/10 is currently the top score with two people on 4/10 in equal second.

TSS Oracles, @sdbodin @JayTee @Graeme1858 @kt4hx @10538 @Michael131313 @JSBach1801 @helicon @Juno16 @Makuser I @SkyHiker the quiz awaits you!

Apologies to any oracles I have omitted.

50%! I actually only knew 3 answers for sure. The rest were guesses! I used a calculator for one and held my hands up in a rectangle in front of me for another.

That was a toughie!

OK, called out, 6/10, but one miss was a straight up blunder, one correct was a SWAG so they even out.

Difficult quiz, but fun and mind bending,

Don't really do statistics.
I usually set 10 questions but the score is automatically given as a percentage so 30% is 3/10. Yes looking at the scores all averaging 30-40% it appears to be much tougher than I thought when I set it.

40% but I missed the last one because I thought I misfired on the Next button, so I clicked it again, and that ended the quiz. It was a math question that I should have got right. But, looking at the answer, I would have answered wrong, and I can't figure out why. Maybe Joe can explain it once the quiz is closed.

UPDATE: Offline, Joe mentioned that the answer I was looking at was my own answer - whatever choice when you hit Next twice, wrong in this case. The right answer is what I calculated later on.

Thank you to everyone who entered this months quiz.
It seems this months quiz was much harder than I thought when I set it. I do set most of these questions from my own knowledge in astronomy, some from interesting snippets that i read, often on this forum. Then I fact check and read to come up with some plausible and devious, alternative multiple choices.

Fear not, the October quiz is a very easy quiz, high score assured to massage everyone's ego.
Will be released on October 1.


Congratulations to our monthly winner:

SPARWEB who scored 70%

We had five runners up on 60%
KT4HX [ Alan ], KATHYNS [ Kathy ], SDBODIN [ Steve ], ANTENNAGUY, JAYTEE


SEPT 2023 RESULTS copy.jpg

Par score for this quiz was 30-40%. Ignore the two 100% scores. That was just me test driving the quiz before release making sure all the correct answers are set correctly.

A few points to note about a few of the questions.
The software that drives this quiz forum doesn't allow for explanations in the result section.

Fifth body from the Sun > 500km
This tripped up 17/23 contestants.
1. Mercury
2. Venus
3. Earth
4. The Moon
5. Mars (was the correct answer)

Kordylewski Clouds are light concentrations of dust very faintly visible in the night sky first reported about 60 years ago. They are gravitationally bound to the Earth-Moon system at the Lagrangian L4/L5 positions 60 degrees either side of the Moon. Because the Moon moves about 12 degrees every night against the starry background, so do the clouds. I've never seen them myself but observing or photographing them is one of the projects on my to do list.

13 / 23 quiz contestants answered:-
"Joe's full of it, it's a trick question, and there's no such thing as Kordylewski Clouds."
Lucky this isn't a democracy. The temptation to have a poke at me, drew more than half of you in. :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

Picture of Rho Ophiuchi
When I first saw this, I thought it was the Orion nebula until I read the caption. So I would have got this question wrong as did many of you.
