But why do people film stuff at great distances with equipment they KNOW is vastly under rated for what they are doing

I would agree but in this case I don't think she knows.....much of anything. That was kind of the point in my previous post. www.abovetopsecret.com...

Possible methane gas rising, el nino.
Or maybe Jupiter isn't freaking out, but rather rock'n out?



I hope Phage doesn't yell at me.

Scintillation..

Shes not even using a telescope.


Yep. Scintillation...

The bane of every astronomer.

Jupiter was fairly near the horizon at the stated time. I've seen the planet Venus split up into three separate pieces under similar conditions.
Atmospheric turbulence distorts the image of the planets, especially when they're near the horizon, due to uneven, quickly varying refraction.
Recall how a hot pavement makes anything in the area above it look like its undulating, like rippling water. This is a similar effect on a larger scale.

One of the coolest things invented (in my opinion) was adaptive optics.

First utilized by the military, it involves compensating for atmospheric distortion through creating an "artificial star" with a laser beam, which provides a standard source by which to measure the distortion and in real time change the telescope's mirror or imaging elements to compensate for the atmosphere's distortion.

It looks really cool in practice as well:
