Another Strange Thing on Planet Jupiter

Strange things are happening to the planet Jupiter. A few weeks ago its southern band faded from view. Now there has been a mysterious explosion on its surface. A bright spot was observed for several seconds. Last year's impact created damage on Jupiter that lasted for months. So the latest collision is only minor.

It is important news for those who move in "planetary" circles, however. The activity is proven because an observer Anthony Wesley, who discovered last year's impact scar, caught it on video. Another astronomer, Christopher Go, also has video of it.

Astronomers have to wait until Jupiter turns on its axis and shows the area again to see if there is lasting damage. Enthusiasts await processing of Anthony Wesley's video to evaluate what actually happened. Christopher Go's Video can be viewed here.
