Space Quiz



Only one e-mail per member so double check your answers before you send your e-mail.

Answers will be verified by at least 2 UK Astronomy members.

At the end of each month the names of everyone with ALL 10 correct answers will be posted on UK Astronomy facebook page. In front of each name there will be a number so for e.g. if there are 15 people all with the correct answers then you will be numbered from 1 to 15 in no particular order of names.

A random number generator will then choose one of the numbers and a screenshot of the winning number along with all the correct answers will then be posted naming and tagging the winner.
