With Tuesday cancelled, the C15 test will take precedence over the C17 quiz if we're back in class on the 14th. You may as well begin working on your C17 hot topic, focusing on stellar evolution. Your topic should involve stellar evolution, red giants, and/or the formation of planetary nebulae, white dwarfs, super novas, neutron stars, and black holes, not on those topics in isolation. 

For example, an article talking about the mass limit for the formation of neutron stars would be fine, but a story on the colission of neutron stars doesn't qualify until we are in chapter 18, when we study these stellar remnants in greater detail.
