Hi,
I'm a high school teacher in IT and I'm interested in astronomy as a hobby. I make fun astronomy games in my spare time and I thought it would be appropriate to present them in this forum. Here is example for fun puzzle to sort the moons of Uranus :)

BTW, my favorite Uranus fact is that the discoverer (W. Herschel) wasn't allowed the name he gave this planet. It was a perfectly good name, IMO. The French seemed to have an issue about it, however, and for some reason Americans as well, perhaps more so in Boston.

This was the first planet ever discovered after ancient civilization. The Uranus solution has been the bane for teachers for how long? Perhaps you've noticed. *wink*.

The IAU corrected the Pluto label, the Hubble Constant label, etc., so why not make the final proper adjustment, namely:

Mercury
Venus
Earth
Mars
Jupiter
Saturn
George
Neptune

Regardless, thanks for your great work,

George

If you want even a hint of a nit....
I think you are using the Neptune color for the sliver represented here of Uranus.
