NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory, California Institute of Technology has prepared some challenges, called Mysteries of the Solar System and Beyond

The instruction is simple. "Become a solar system detective and see if you can solve the stellar mysteries in this slideshow before reading how the scientists did it." I couldn't help but think of one big difference between a person with a casual interest in what's out there and the scientists who study it, is that the know a lot and for many of the images were specialists but that doesn't take away the fun.   

I haven't done them all but so far I have not done well.
