‘Something’ Big Just Hit Jupiter In Amazing New Footage

Something did hit Jupiter and the burst off the planet’s surface is pretty impressive!

John Mckeon captured the moment a large unknown object slammed into the ‘right side’ of the planet Jupiter on March 17, 2016.


John made a time-lapse, using an 11" SCT with an ASI120mm camera and Ir-pass 742nm filter, of processed images leading to the impact on Jupiter.

It isn’t known whether the object was an asteroid, a comet or a celestial object of unknown origin.

The following enhanced footage shows the impact, zoomed in, slow motion and still images.
The second one is John Mckeon’s original time lapse video.
