Glad you enjoyed it! It's certainly not easy to guess, but try zodiac signs! Or maybe you have something to learn and challenge yourself with now ;) And thank you for your kind words :D

Great quiz! However, you could include the rest of the Ursa Major constellation (it extends beyond just the Big Dipper).

Thanks :) And I based it upon an image I found, so I just used the stars which were the brightest on there.

This quiz should be featured - very good indeed!

The quiz is great! However, you did forget some of the (REALLY obscure) constellations, like Camelopardalis. Also, Virgo, Lyra, Lacerta, Sagitta, Vulpecula, Andromeda, etc. were not included. Still a great quiz though! I would also enjoy a southern hemisphere version.

You accept Big Dipper as a type in for ursa major, but you don't accept Little Dipper as a type in for ursa minor????

"Ursa maior" should be accepted instead of "ursa major". It is true that official IAU name is spelled with "j", but classical Latin ortography did not include "j".

Very nice, more of this, but why do you show the stars of Andromeda as part of Pegasus?

It's complicated... Andromeda and Pegasus are actually linked together by the star Alpheratz, which is a part of both constellations.

Nice quiz, although it would be great if I could hover over each one and see the name, like in the country map quizzes :) (or maybe it does already and my browser's just not working...)

The only bad thing is that the answers aren't shown when you hover over the images.

Awesome quiz and map! One suggestion - it would be cool if you could add the feature where the correct answer appears when you hover over it (after the quiz is over). This would help us learn the constellations! Thanks again for a great quiz!

It's great to see a quiz where no one gets 100%, so we don't have to put up with boorish comments like "100% with 3:41 left"

Nice quiz :) though I think if big dipper is accepted for ursa major. Little dipper (or little bear) should be accepted for ursa minor. (I tried big dipper instead of ursa major, just to see if it would be accepted. But when little bear and little dipper didnt work for ursa minor I somehow forgot to try ursa minor..)

9/21 not bad. Especially looking at the answers, only ones I might ve gotten with a bit more time was cassiopeia ( I had that one in might and was on the tip of my tongue when time ran out) and well the ursa minor, since the alternative names werent accepted. (did also try virgo and well most of the zodiac signs and andromeda and orion and giraffe (cameleopard) and perseides and snake)

I can’t remember exactly (I made this quiz a long time ago), but I think it was what is actually visible from the night sky at the two extremes for some location on earth.

Little Dipper processes as Ursa Major... otherwise great quiz!
