144P24 is an unnamed period-24 oscillator that was discovered by Noam Elkies on November 20, 1994.[1] It was the second period 24 oscillator to be found, after 186P24.

It works roughly by using two period 12 crowns to hassle a blinker, though the stable form of the crown wasn't found until two months later.
