On September 10, a flash was detected by amateur astronomers on Jupiter. Similar to the fireball detected and imaged by Chris Go and Anthony Wesley in 2010, this appears to have been located near the equator and early reports suggest that no “scar” was left on the planet — either the object burned up before it plunged deep enough into Jupiter’s cloud tops to “dredge” up material showing the characteristic black spot of earlier impacts (2009, 1994) or the object was simply too small to make a dent in the big planet.
Conditions were generally poor to fair, but it was a beautiful, cool autumn morning to be out. Here’s an IR image when the possible impact site was crossing the central meridian.
And a color image taken a bit later, when the seeing had improved somewhat.
