CSS Animating SVG with CSS Transitions and Transforms Transitions and Transforms

Challenge Task 2 of 6

I know I entered the correct code:

.star-bg { transition: fill .1s; }

.star-bg:hover { fill: steelblue; }

However when I check the code it states that it is wrong.

Hi Robert,

Looks like the current code specifies a tenth of a second transition, when what is needed is a one second transition.

.star-bg {
  transition: fill 1s;
}

Hope this helps!
