10/10... 2 lucky guesses, the constellation number and the moon vs sun size on earth's sky (pretty evident if you have in mind solar eclipses) questions.

8/10 Missed the earth and moon size in the sky. Forgot about eclipses entirely. I was duped on the stars in our solar system..was thinking galaxy. When was the war of 1812?

My high school had a small planetarium and an astronomy course.

Got tripped up on the sun is the ONLY star, there are only 9 not 10 planets (i could have sworn they'd reclassified something as a 10th planet!) and which appears bigger - sun or moon.

Back to the planetarium with me!

Well, they have found a 10th body orbiting the sun... But when I saw that it wasn't included in the "which is farther" question, I knew that answer had to be 9.
