ABILENE (AP) – While awaiting confirmation that she has, indeed, discovered a new asteroid, a West Texas college student is working on what name to hang on the cosmic rock.

Cisco College student Jessica Williams tells the Abilene Reporter-News she wants to name the asteroid the Black Pearl. That’s after the ship Johnny Depp’s pirate character captains in Disney’s “Pirates of the Caribbean” film series.

The 19-year-old Williams is one of the students who have possibly discovered asteroids through a program created by Hardin-Simmons University math professor Patrick Miller.
