Moons of the Solar System: Astronomy Trivia Scoreboard

Monday’s trivia contest on Periscope had some exciting conversation. IMG_1566 Congrats to both @balsawood and @GhandhiJapandy for both correctly answering three questions.

I host “Let’s talk astronomy” on Periscope at 8 am on most Mondays and 8 pm most Wednesdays.  We talk about astronomy and have a little fun while doing so,  Mondays we play a trivia game, and Wednesdays I read a section of a book.  Then we have interesting and sometimes lively discussion..IMG_1565

Points of discussion are listed after the scoreboard.

Why do I think there are about 500 technologically advanced civilizations in our galaxy?

Are there many brown dwarfs near our Sun?

Is the area of Mercury and Venus too hot for moons to form around those planets?

Are there a quarter million craters on just the earth-side of the Moon, or the total surface?

How do the orbital planes of the moons of Uranus being in the equatorial plane of that planet clue us that they were formed before Uranus got tilted over?
