A new supernova!

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!
