DSoM Post Jupiter Hit for Third Time in 13 Months

Jupiter Hit for Third Time 
in 13 Months


From NewScientist:

At the time of the 1994 comet strike, astronomers thought that impacts on Jupiter might occur only once in several centuries. But the recent amateur observations suggest that estimate is wrong.

The sudden abundance of such observations is probably thanks to a technique for making very sharp still images by combining the clearest frames from a video recording, says Glenn Orton of NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California.
