Reach for the Stars B

Post by AstroPixel24 » September 16th, 2020, 9:56 am

Since there isn't a question marathon for Reach for the Stars, here's one!

Some easy ones to start off with--

1. This type of nebula contains H II regions and is formed from ionizing gases. M42 (Orion Nebula) and M8 (Lagoon Nebula) are prime examples of this nebula.

2. Name this naked-eye double binary pair nicknamed "Horse and Rider".

3. New Horizons becomes the first space craft to demonstrate what astronomical phenomenon?
(not really adhering to the guidelines but just some trivia)
