Keep looking to the stars...


"On 26 February 1783, Caroline made her first discovery: she had found a nebula that was not included in the Messier catalogue. That same night, she independently discovered Messier 110 (NGC 205), the second companion of the Andromeda Galaxy."


"...the first woman to receive full recognition in the field of astronomy."


Caroline Herschel
