I don't know much about clouds - except they block the lovely light to my scope :Chessy_Smile: - but I guess number 4.

Hi Phoenix,

Now most people would be tempted to say Tropical Australia - or fot those who live there Northern Queensland, Northertn Terrority and Northern Western Australia.

However the real hot spot for Cyclones is the South China Sea.

Try this - it's a crime scene.

Police arrive at the house. There's broken glass on the floor with a curtain flapping in the wind and there's water all over the place. On the floor, John and Mary lay dead.

Question: Who were John and Mary?

Batman's sidekick's parents? Robin = Dick Grayson, so John and Mary Grayson?

Nah, on second thought they were murdered while performing a circus act if memory serves.

Astronomy Quiz

This quiz is a great idea Jason, but sometimes when I log on I find there's been a few questions I've missed and the answers to them have already been posted. How about fixing a time for submission of member's answers before you post the correct answer.

You could make the cut-off time midnight (for instance) after which you post the correct answers along with a new question. This would help to spin the quiz out a bit and allow more members a chance to answer (even if it means they google it or check it out on wikipedia. It's all learning!).

Whatcha reckon?

What's the focal length of the Hubble Space Telescope?

-Noel

Hi Noel

I give up. I know it's a cassegrain type telescope with a primary mirror of 2.5mtrs and has a concave secoundary. But that's all I know.
