Kathryn Aurora Gray of Fredericton, N.B. is basking in the spotlight after noticing what was later determined to be a magnitude 17 supernova, or exploding star, on New Year’s Eve.
Not bad for a 10-year-old!!!
She is now acknowledged by the International Astronomical Union to be the youngest person to make such a discovery.
Perhaps more than one supernova has been discovered on New Year’s Eve!
