Back on Nov.8 2008 my daughter Caroline 14 years old became the youngest person known to have discover a supernova. As part of The Puckett Observatory Supernova search Team Caroline found SN2008ha, her first supernova & making her the youngest person ever to find a one.

Wow! Congratulations! What an accomplishment at her age. I am just overjoyed when my 15 year old brings home a great report card! grin (And give her an extra thanks from all of us girls too!)
