In an incredible coincidence where a paper was released today about the 2009 impact event on Jupiter, the same amateur astronomer who captured that event also captured a new impact Jupiter that occurred at about 20:30 UT today (June 3, 2010). Anthony Wesley from Australia captured the flash of an impact, which was also captured and confirmed by Christopher Go of the Philippines. Watch Go’s video here. Go said he shot it with a blue filter. Word is that Anthony is processing his video, and we’ll post it when available.
Update: We’ve added Anthony Wesley’s color image of the impact, above (you can see the original image below) and also added Anthony’s video of the event, below.
