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!

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. :?:

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:
You were an AWESOME teacher >:U
Celestial rectangle<3

Wait. So that means my partner's gonna be--Ohh no :shock:

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?
