Video: Did Something Hit Jupiter?

Jupiter hit

A frame from Austrian observer Gerrit Kernbauer’s video of Jupiter from March 17, 2016

Two amateur videos recorded on March 17 show a brief but bright flash that appears to be an impact on Jupiter.

One observer, Gerrit Kernbauer, posted his video on YouTube and commented that he “..found this strange light spot that appeared for less than one second on the edge of the planetary disc. Thinking back to Shoemaker-Levy 9, my only explanation for this is an asteroid or comet that enters Jupiters high atmosphere and burned up/explode very fast.”

Observer John McKeon also caught the flash on video:

Sky & Telescope reports that although the timing of the impact in both videos is a bit off, the event appears to be real:

Apparently the impacting object, be it an asteroid or comet, was rather small. “Nobody sees any debris field associated with that part of the atmosphere,” notes Glenn Orton (Jet Propulsion Laboratory). Apparently mission managers decided against slewing the Hubble Space Telescope around to take a quick look.

If the evidence for the impact holds up, it would be the fifth such event in the last ten years or so. The largest was first spotted by Australian astro-imager Anthony Wesley and occurred on July 19, 2009. It left a distinctly dark “powder burn” in Jupiter’s upper atmosphere.

    not an impact, just a nuclear war goin on over there over who gets to take over earth..

    • Reverend Draco

      LOL

      • billdeserthills

        Said the Fake child molesting Reverend!

        • Reverend Draco

          Now I understand what’s wrong with you. A priest molested you when you were a child, and you completely flipped your flapjacks.

          Too bad that your parents didn’t get you some therapy, you might have had a chance at a halfway normal life.

          • Gary

            I bet that’s exactly what happened to you, Draco, the fool. You’re obviously off your meds again. Who let you out of your padded cell? Hurry back in before the nurse catches you & puts you in the straight jacket again, LOL!! LONG LIVE ISRAEL! Pagans are pencil necked pussies. Put THAT in your crack pipe & smoke it, pencil neck.

          • Reverend Draco

            Welll well. . . my stalker sent his Uncle Cousinbrother to take his place. Hey -next time you go home to doink your dog, tell your Grandma Auntiesis “hi” for me – her latest foray into inter-species erotica, Dances with Donkeys, was a big hit at the last Lodge meeting.
            Your cameo, however, left much to be desired – as much as that big black donkey unloaded on you, you really should have used both hands to wipe your face.

            By the way – Karma is a bitch, huh? Decapitation isn’t as much fun when members of your cult are on the receiving end, is it?

          • Gary

            So says the brain dead “Reverend Rob”, who out of embarrassment, has changed his stupid name to another stupid name, “Reverend Draco”. Talk to me as soon as you have your empty head removed from you fat arse, fool. LOL!!

          • Reverend Draco

            Who is this “Reverend Rob” character you keep going on about, dimglow? Did he tease you about your “oral” fixation or something?
            You sound like a jilted girlfriend.

          • Gary

            You, dumb dumb. Any more questions, little girly boy?

          • Reverend Draco

            Yeah – are you incoherent on purpose. . . or is it simply that it’s the best your tiny brain cell can muster?

          • Gary

            Your head is apparently still up your arse. Talking about incoherent? Just look in the mirror, wimpy. Oh, by the way, I was just wondering how long did that mail order “Reverend” course take, “Reverend” Rob?

          • Reverend Draco

            It took no time at all. . .not even a stamp or a Post Office box. . . If you want to know what it cost your obsession, Rob, to become ordained, I suggest you ask him. Or does he have a restraining order against you for stalking him?

            Yes, I’m talking about your increasingly irrational and incoherent comments. . . I would say that an education would fix that, but I fear that you suffer from more serious underlying problems that may need years of therapy to properly deal with.

          • Gary

            Stop flattering yourself, moron. Why in Hell (your home town) would anyone want to be “stalking” a loser such as yourself, Rob/Draco/make believe reverend? Get help, before it’s too late. If you were educated, you wouldn’t be writing such babbling trash. You may start in the right direction by laying off that crack pipe. Got it, windbag?

          • Reverend Draco

            Not Rob, not make-believe. . . except in the fantasy world you inhabit – which is your own personal variety of paranoid delusional disorder. . . and nothing to do with me.

            You may also want to seek help with your projection issues – for your own safety, as well as the safety of those you come into contact with throughout the day. . .

          • Gary

            Advice from an obviously mentally unstable nerd like you, doesn’t hold much weight. Now you think you’re Jung. Talk about “issues”? You’re the poster boy of mental issues. How did you escape those restraints, & sneak on to your nurse’s computer? Better get back before nurse Ratchet catches your sorry ass, dummy.

          • Reverend Draco

            It’s “Ratched,” cretin. Now. . . don’t you have some homework to do? Or are you going to continue saying, “screw that l’arnin’ stuff,” and repeat 6th grade – again?

            Do the rest of us a favor – please, whatever you do, do not breed. The last thing the world needs is another generation of microcephalic “gimme dats’.”

          • Gary

            Sorry I spelled your nurse’s name wrong, sicko. I can see you’ve built quite the close relationship with your handlers, fool. You try too hard to sound smart, but your dumbness keeps surfacing. What an empty wind bag you are. It’s quite amusing actually to see you bust a gasket in uncontrollable anger, as I treat you like the moronic nut case that you are. Jerks like you always crash & burn the second they get a little attitude adjustment. Enjoy getting your panties in a bunch, wimp “Rev Rob” (now “Draco” LOL!).

          • Reverend Draco

            Uncontrollable anger? Surely you jest?

            Uncontrollable laughter, perhaps. . . but not anger. . .

            I know her name because I’m not a barely-literate, uneducated cretin. . .
            You do realize that Nurse Ratched is a fictional character, much like your amoral godling, right?

            “Named fifth worst movie villain, by the American Film Institute, Nurse Ratched is a cold, dictatorial nurse who controls a psych ward with an iron fist. From elevator music played loudly throughout the day to rigging group votes, Ratched finds ways to exacerbate the numbness the
            patients experience in the minds. All the patients follow who rules placidly until R.P. McMurphy (Jack Nicholson) joins the ward. Ratched catches on to his game and figures out ways to make his life more difficult.”
            One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest is a fine movie. . . definitely worth watching.

            I long for the next installment of your downward spiral – I’ve been sharing your incoherence with my wife, and she gets a laugh out of it, too.

            Speaking of panties. . . I have a pair of used chonies I was going to send your friend Bill – would you like me to send them to you, instead?

            Sincerely,

            Reverend “Not Rob” Draco.

          • Gary

            Oh my. I really feel sorry for that make believe wife of yours, little Rob. I wonder what other make believe little friends you have also. It’s funny, & also sad how you had to explain the whole movie to me. What a dork. It’s amazing how you are reduced to a whining, sniveling baby when someone flushes you out of that fantasy world of yours. Why don’t you do the rest of us a favor, & flush yourself down the nearest toilet. Thanks for the entertainment.

  • Jeffersonian

    First off, why is it spinning that fast? Secondly, if it came from NASA then it’s cgi

    • Jeffersonian

      Even if it does spin faster than all the planets, it’s still too fast! Instead of 9 hrs in the day, that’s more like 2 minutes in a day or even les

      • Reverend Draco

        It also has a diameter of 86,881.4 miles and a circumference of 272,946 miles (compared to Earth’s measly 7,917.5 mile diameter and 24,901mile circumference).

        Your education is lacking. You might want to fix that before trying to science.

        • billdeserthills

          Much like your @ss Lying sack of Reverend, indeed!

  • jame watts

    Yet more bullshit from duped clowns when they know dam well Jupiter doesn’t exist when we can’t go into outer space…..

    • Reverend Draco

      Wipe the drool off your chin, Bobo – you’re going to short out your keyboard.

      • billdeserthills

        What’s it to You fake reverend?

    • It is not Paranoia

      Yes we can’t!

    • Nexusfast123

      You should address the issue with the inner space in your head.

  • It is not Paranoia

    Looks like some blurry circle with….something….

    What am I saying. It’s PLANET JUPITER IN OUTER SPACE that totally exists. I hope they make a movie out of this soon! Call it….Gravity on Jupiter maybe…

  • lloyd Lisco

    Soon these impactors will be hitting earth, Then you will be able to get a much Closer look at them.

    • Reverend Draco

      fortunately for us, Jupiter is of such a size, such a mass comma and such a position as to attract and sweep many of these impactors out of our path.

  • Lumen_Kelvin

    I wondered where Zeus Moved? Do you suppose, he’s building an Empire out there on Jupiter?

  • Dunno y

    Just aliens dumping their rubbish again. Earth environmental laws by the EPA cost to much to bribe and theirs no alien ATMs in our solar system. Don’t worry Washington has plans to tax them next time by sending the CIA in first for a color revolution. They will call it the alien spring.
