Continents list task 1 challenge help?

I keep getting the following error on the first task on the continents challenge. I think my code is correct. Any ideas?

Traceback (most recent call last): File "", line 49, in test_output AssertionError: '* Asia' not found in '*Asia\n*South America\n*North America\n*Africa\n*Europe\n*Antarctica\n*Australia' : Hmm...not finding the correct items in your output

continents.py
continents = [
    'Asia',
    'South America',
    'North America',
    'Africa',
    'Europe',
    'Antarctica',
    'Australia',
]
for continent in continents:
    print("*" + continent)

You're very close! You just need to put a space between the "bullet" and the name:

    print("* " + continent)  # note space added to string

Ahh! Of course! I'd forgotten that little detail. Thanks!

Also for the next question you can replace all the first letters in the continents with an A, and it works.

I would've never thought to try that, but it does! :see_no_evil:

You might want to report that as a bug to the Support staff!
