Not sure what this error message means, my output code seems to be the correct answer...

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)

Hi Isaiah,

It looks like you may have two spaces after the asterisk instead of only one. Remove that extra space and you should be good to go. Or perhaps you tabbed instead of pressing the space bar. Either way, once that’s corrected you’ll pass the challenge.
