isn't UY Scuti the biggest star? Andromeda is closest to us; the sun will burn out in 7.5 billion years, no? was this quiz made a decade ago? overall a good quiz, but a touch up would be nice.

I did this test twice and got Andromeda and Canis Major Dwarf as the closest galaxy as the correct answer ( it is Andromeda), Also the sun will die in over 5 billion years not 1.5 to 4.5 billion. The test is slightly misguided
