AbstractHere we report the discovery of 24 transient objects as part of the Pan-STARRS Survey for Transients (PSST) found by citizen scientists involved in the Supernova Hunters Zooniverse Project. This took place during the Cosmic Shambles Network 24 hour online event - Nine Lessons and Carols for Socially Distanced People on 2020-12-12. This report includes classifications of 1 SN Ia-91bg-like and 1 SN 87A-like object (at the UH 2.2m telescope on Mauna Kea on 2020-12-13) and 1 CV (Liverpool Telescope on 2020-12-12), along with 21 unclassified transients.
