Default Astronomy Lesson of Records

Come in every one. This isn't exactly a lesson, but you can still score some major points!

This (kinda) lesson will be spent on records. The biggest, brightest, hottest... you name it. I will post a question, something to do with a record within the universe, and the first person to correctly guess it will earn 5 points. I have 25 questions to ask, so there is 125 house points up for grabs!

Just a few quick rules...
1. Only the first person to correctly guess will be awarded points.
2.There will be no disputing of answers as they come from a completely reliable source.
3. Have fun and earn some points for your house!

So get ready, the questioning is about to begin!!

Kali prepares herself for the questions thinking of various facts in her head.

Mithos enters the classroom and sits next to Francis. Read for the questions he is glad to see that his fellow Ravenclaws were there too. He smiled at Francis.

Xavier looks around and sees all of his fellow Ravenclaws. He smiles, hoping that they win their house 125 points.

be curious, not judgmental

Julia walks into the classroom and takes a seat next to Mithos. She really hopes the Ravenclaws win the 125 house points. She looks at the other Ravenclaws. She smiles at them and looks up at the professor.

The Orion Nebula (M42 (Messier 42)) is the brightest nebula in the sky, with an apparent magnitude of 4. Located in the 'sword' of the constellation of Orion, the nebula is easily visible to the naked eye

Zekke raised his hand. "SN 2004dj?"

"Errr wait... that would depend... They said that the SN 2004DJ was the brightest of the decade..." His voice trailed off.

:: Ganymede shrugged not knowing any of the answers. Ravenclaws must stare into space alot. I wonder what that Ogre Borr will do when he sees his newly decorated Office??? Ganymede thought as she drew a picture of the loathed Ministry Official. ::
