What am i doing wrong? AssertionError: '* Asia' not found in 'continents:\n*Asia\n*South America\n*North

The fist part of my code check shows that Asia does in fact have a "*" but its still showing an error that "Asia" is not found?

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

courtney Hatcher, you are SO close!!

You’re getting “*Asia”, you need “* Asia”

:point_right: A space is needed between the asterisk and the continent name.

Post back if you need more help. Good luck!!!
