145P20 is an unnamed period20 oscillator. It was the first nontrivial period 20 oscillator to be found,^{[note 1]} and was discovered by Noam Elkies on March 22, 1995.^{[1]}
It works by using sparks from three period 4 middleweight emulators and the period 5 middleweight volcano to hassle a traffic light predecessor. The middleweight emulator on the left can be replaced with a middleweight volcano.
Notes
 ↑ A period20 oscillator, heavyweight emulator on octagon II, can be constructed from two sparkers (heavyweight emulator and octagon II) both of which were known by 1980. However, this type of oscillator is generally considered "boring", and thus not counted despite technically being nontrivial.
