124P21 is an unnamed period21 oscillator that was discovered by Robert Wainwright on February 21, 1995.^{[1]} It was the first period 21 oscillator to be found.^{[note 1]}
It works by using two period 3 caterers and two copies of 44P7.2 to hassle two traffic light predecessors.
Notes
 ↑ A period21 oscillator, jam on 44P7.2, can be constructed from two sparkers (jam and 44P7.2) both of which were known by 1988. However, this type of oscillator is generally considered "boring", and thus not counted despite technically being nontrivial.
