Oops! You can't tell a planet from a stray asteroid. Astronomy must be totally outside of your orbit! Let's just hope that you do better in your area of expertise.

Well, that could have gone better. Thanks to a stellar elementary school teacher, you still remember the names of the planets, but that's about it. Try paying a visit to the nearest observatory. You'll be amazed what the universe holds!

It's a start! Maybe you've never undertaken a serious study of astronomy, but you've still picked up a few fun facts! At the very least, it's clear that you like astronomy, so why not go to an observatory or buy an encyclopedia and brush up?

A passing grade, technically... It's been a few years since you tried to wrap your head around the cosmos, and some of the stars have faded out of your memory. You know enough to impress the average person on a stargazing trip, but if you want to be an astronomy whiz, you'll need to hit the books!

Stellar! When you look up at the night sky, you see all sorts of secrets that other people miss. And you also see unsolved mysteries. You make sure to keep up on the latest breakthroughs in astronomy, but you aren't quite in with the experts yet.

Out of this world! You are a walking, talking encyclopedia of astronomical knowledge. Time to start sharing your passion with other people! Set up a telescope in your attic or get a stargazing trip together. Other people will be delighted to learn from an expert like you.
