Soooo, if it is growing in size, wouldn't that mean it is likely not an comet hit?

Or would a hit from a comet cause a cloud like that on Jupiter? Did something explode?

I dunno much about this stuff...so why is it growing

Excellent photo's thanks for posting them. Gives a person a reason to pause and reflect and just how small we are in the scheme of things.

yep its strange because if it would be an impact well than it would not grow like this because according to info jupiter is a gas giant soooo shockwave mmmm nea dont think so this is something different

The impact scar is at the top of Jupiter's atmosphere. It makes perfect sense that it would change shape and grow in size, because the planet's atmosphere is constantly in motion.

Awesome, should be even easier to see then. Now if I could just get my good weather generator to start working... I hate Florida summer weather, especially in the inland counties.

Those pictures are from shortly after impact, and from a much more significant set of impacts as well. Here's a picture showing the actual evolution of the Shoemaker-Levy 9 impacts D and G, and it's almost identical to what we're seeing now:

It's not strange.

Jupiter's atmosphere is comprised of dense gases, so it is perfectly consistent for a shockwave made by an impact to travel through these dense gases -- especially considering (as ncghunter pointed out above) the information that we learned from Shoemaker-Levy 9.
