First Folks First

 

Ms. Maria Mitchell was born August 1, 1818 in Nantucket. In 1847 she discovered a comet with her telescope, and registered it officially. The King of Denmark awarded her a medal and the credit for her achievement. It is called “Miss Mitchell’s Comet”.

Her work garnered credibility for studies in Astronomy in the United States. She later became a professor and published author.

Rhinos are happy, thinking Ms. Mitchell followed her star.
