Jupiter impacted by asteroid – discovered by Australian Amateur Astronomer Anthony Wesley

June 4, 2010

This is a cross-post from Phil Plait’s Bad Astronomy blogsite

BREAKING: Another Jupiter impact? | Bad Astronomy | Discover Magazine.

Phil reported that Australian Amateur Astronomer, Anthony Wesley, recorded an impact by an asteroid, coincidentally on the same day that news about another impact Anthony discovered in 2009 was released! Very bizzare.

Anthony captured video this time too, which you can view for yourself. See the Bad Astronomy post for further details.
