I just took the Planets quiz, and I noticed a problem. On the question that ask "how many planets are visable without a telescope?", it said it was 4. That is incorrect. Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn (5 so far), and if you have really good vision, Uranus is visable to the naked eye. Other than that, I think the website is good.

Thanks, 10_inch_ground_hugger - but are you saying the correct answer should be 5 or 6? (What is "really good eyesight")?

Man, we really gotta check our quizzes better...sorry for this. Posted Image

When I say "Very good eyesight" I mean extremely rare. The sixth planet is Uranus, which was discovered by a telescope, so it is so dim, that unless you have rare eyesight, perfectly dark skies, and know where to look, you won't find it. So I would say the answer is 5.
