“Impact mark on Jupiter”

For the record, there has been a “black-out” of new photos of Jupiter, since the July impact…so, if anyone has new images, please share with the rest of the world….many thanks!

A few weeks ago, I heard on NPR, that an amateur astronomer photographed impact marks on Jupiter.  Soon afterwards, Hubble was able to capture its own photos and then was out of commission due to lens repair.  Since then, it’s come to my attention that many people are unaware that Jupiter was impacted, yet again, this time by an unknown object.

Well – thank God for amateur astronomers, the night sky is huge, and NASA’s budget is very small.  And special thanks for Jupiter’s enormous size and chemical composition in bearing the blunt of that impact – better you, than us.  Amen!
