    Jupiter gets a boo boo

    Something Large Just Smashed Into Jupiter (msn.com)

    It's a rather grainy pic of something smashing into Jupiter, I'm wondering why some pics from NASA are crystal clear and others are grainy as hell leaving plenty of speculation factor, especially when they dont want us to know exactly what it was leaving lots of room for "we think's" and "could be's".

    Most likely another fragment from the large body tooling around out there they dont want to admit to (think of the panic it could cause) of which I myself have seen 3 large meteors breaking up while walking my dog early in the morning in the last 5 years or so and even last night on way home I saw a nice bright red streak across the southwest sky (Ohio).

    Consider these events are captured from Earth not from a satellite. Considering the distance and the atmosphere on Earth the video is rather clear.

    The detailed photos we see are either far away, with Hubble, or "close" up by satellite. So videos like this seem to me to be the best we will get, from Earth.

    Also consider that the video was captured by luck, just looking in the right direction.

    I was watching Jupiter the other night with my 8 power binoculars and might have seen that. It did look like something might of hit and I thought it was just the sun shining off Jupiter.

    he's right of course,,unless you want to spend 10 k on a really good telescope, a good pair of binos can be had for a fraction of the cost and produce more enjoyable gazing times.

    Not surprising, as Jupiter is the 2nd largest body in our Solar System.

    It's gravity well pulls in anything that isn't pulled away from it, either by another, larger gravity well (the Sun), or motion in another direction/rotation....

    I actually, have a terrestrial telescope but it's a pain to dig out and use and surprisingly enough you can't see any better than with my high quality Leopold binoculars for almost a $1,000. Where the telescope really comes in handy is out in the country and it's light gathering ability but with all the smog from fires the binoculars works just as well.

    almost as good as those "why are we giving away these powerful 20 mile binoculars for the low price of $19.99?"

    as if we measure its strength by miles and not power...
