Its not yet confirmed as to what it is...Astronomers believe its the debris from something that hit the planet


Evidence is mounting that something hit Jupiter no more than a few days ago. The impact site was discovered by amateur astronomer Anthony Wesley on July 19th. Using a 14.5-inch telescope at his backyard observatory in Murrumbateman, Australia, he photographed a dark scar in Jupiter's clouds. NASA astronomers rushed to confirm the find, and with this photo from the Infrared Telescope Facility in Hawaii, they did:


The bright spot is near-infrared sunlight reflected from particulate matter floating through the top of Jupiter's atmosphere. These particulates are likely debris from something that hit the planet and exploded. "This has all the hallmarks of the comet Shoemaker-Levy 9 impacts of 1994," says Leigh Fletcher of JPL who gathered the infrared data along with colleague Glenn Orton.

If the impact hypothesis is indeed correct, the "scar" should become spread out by jet streams in the days ahead. Amateur astronomers can monitor events using mid-sized backyard telescopes: sky map. The spot is located near Jupiter's System II longitude 210°. For the predicted times when it will cross the planet's central meridian, add 2 hours and 6 minutes to Sky and Telescope's predicted transit times for Jupiter's Great Red Spot.







Any people heard about this....what do you guys think it is?

Nice . there was a thread about it here yesterday, another picture though!

Are they sure it was an impact now..?
Shoemaker was nine asteroids, and it could be more of them..

Lets see if there are more of them, there have been too many close calls on earth also.

Astronomers have discovered asteroids after they have passed earth, and if it were to impact, we'd know nothing.

OR, they knew about it and sayd nothing, hoping for the best and 'discovered' it after the danger was over..

Thanks so much for posting this video!
I lost it a while back.
I love to open it up in a couple of windows and letting it play against itself.

ANYWAY - I so so so hope we make contact in my lifetime...

I’ve got such hope we will.

Whatever’s happening on Jupiter - I’ve no idea - but if it’s got to do with *First Contact* for real - GET IT ON BABY!



peace
