The girls, from the city of Surat in the western Indian state of Gujarat, were participating in a Space India and NASA project, that allows students to analyze images taken by a telescope positioned at the University of Hawaii.
The body, named HLV2514, was detected by them as part of an worldwide campaign and has been classified as a near-Earth object (NEO), which means it will be passing by our planet in the future.
Here is more about their incredible feat.

However, Smith put on a fearless face yesterday, saying: "I'm not going to make any excuses - the players are ready to play". Smith said: "A lot of the players, and staff, were asymptomatic but some symptoms crept up on people".
Since the discovery, the asteroid has been given the name HLV2514, its unofficial designation until NASA confirms its orbit and gives the go-ahead on choosing an official name for the roaming space rock, which is now near the orbit of the red planet. "It may take a few years' time".
Dwivedi explained that the asteroid is now close to the orbit of Mars - but in 1 million years, it will change its orbit and move closer to Earth, although it will still be at a distance of more than 10 times the distance which exists between the Earth and the Moon. It is, in fact, a near-Earth object (NEO).
Currently, the asteroid is circling Mars, and does not remain a threat to Earth.
The asteroid was identified as HLV2514. Earth-crossing asteroids are called Apollos.
