We Got One!

 

With over a million classifications from thousands of volunteers at www.supernovasighting.org we manage to discover a Type-1a supernova and publish the result in under 24 hours! You can read the publication at http://www.astronomerstelegram.org/?read=11667. The volunteers who successfully identified the supernova are listed as co-authors. Not bad for an evening’s work!
