O my gosh. Congratulations on 4th! :) I love stars, no matter what place I get, but placing at Nationals is HUGE (as I'm sure you know...)
Thanks! I was so happy.

I really enjoyed the event and liked how it was set up, but it was just too easy. Especially having the lines in the pictures!

It felt like an okay test.

13th place though XD

I know!!!!!! Half of me's glad the lines were there, but at the same time I felt like it was an insult to our pride... I know I shoulden't really be talking considering my place, but I think it would have been better without the lines...

Yeah, same, I'm kinda glad the lines were there, but I probably would have still figured each of the constellations out.

My partner and I probably would have figured most of them out, but not all of them...

Hey, were eclipses even in the rules? Just curious. :?:

I thought this test was surprisingly easy for a National test (Although I still got 23rd :? ...)

Did anyone else feel that way?
Yes I thought the test was extremely easy. I actually have a feeling I know what I got wrong. I got 4th ( :D :D :D :D ) and I bet that the 6 medal places were separated by about 10 points.
Oh, really? :D
Not that I'm surprised or anything :lol:

They weren't mentioned specifically, but you could put them under Sun, I guess. That seems more Solar System to me though.

Well I know it was maybe in question number 20-30 there was a question that's answer was an eclipse. Then the questions about the moon and arcturus i think was a conjunction. And then of course there was a picture of the solar eclipse.

Where can we find the test? Didn't the event supervisor say that he would put the test on a website or something like that?
