Python Introducing Lists Using Lists Continental

Continent List Question

I am stuck on the first list question. My code is below.

continents.py
continents = [
    'Asia',
    'South America',
    'North America',
    'Africa',
    'Europe',
    'Antarctica',
    'Australia',
]

print("Continents:")
for continent in continents:
    print("*" + continent)

Does anyone know why this is not printing the continents with a *? It shows correct in the preview, but says something about Asia is not found in the list.

Skylar Claypool, you are very close!

The preview shows โ€œAsiaโ€, and is stating โ€œ Asiaโ€ not found in the list.

A printed space is needed following the asterisk (*)
