Jupiter impact, June 3 2010

Morning all :-)

This is not a hoax, at approximately 20:30utc this morning I recorded a large fireball on Jupiter, it lasted a couple of seconds and was very bright.

I have it recorded on video :-) I'm at Trevors place at the moment, using his internet, I'll put together a short video later.

This was a large fireball, but it doesn't seem to have left any mark, probably all gone in the upper atmosphere before it reached the clouds.

How exciting!

cheers, Bird

Wow, again! I can't wait to see what you got.

Did Trevor record it too?

Mate you must have memorised every twirl and shape on this planet to pick up this kind of thing from one day to the other. Great stuff. They should rename the whole thing from Jupiter to 'birdwatch'. You don't miss a beat.

Hi Anthony

That is really exciting news – what an incredible event to have recorded. I seriously think that NASA or the professional observatories should have you on their payroll – your world class contribution to planetary science through recording these events keeping the scientific community informed is quite unique and extraordinary!

Well done!

Dennis

How freaky is that? I packed up just ten minutes before this occurred. Time to get a big lottery ticket Anthony. Well done again.

Chris Go has also confirmed with a video in the blue light from Cebu city. This would be a first for imaging an impact live from Earth with an amateur telescope.
