Here is one I have had way too much fun since very few really know this answer... What is the true color of the Sun?   ["True color" here means the Sun's color that most people would see if they were observing it from space and at an appropriate intensity -- its brightness is so great that it causes astronauts to see it as blinding white since all the eye's activated color cones are "maxed" in output, thus preventing any true color determination (not to mention the risk this is for retina damage).]   A)  White B)  Yellow-white C)  Yellow D)  Green-yellow E)   Orangish F)   Redish G)  Peachy Pink  [http://casa.colorado.edu/~ajsh/colour/Tspectrum.html] The winners receive honorary status as heliochromologists, first class.
