Impact with Jupiter caused a flash so bright that the moment of impact was visible even from the Ground
To see the fall of a meteorite on another planet – it’s like hitting the jackpot in the lottery
Amateur astronomer from Texas Ethan Chapple recorded a stunning moment as the mysterious white object, most likely a piece of comet crashing into Jupiter, causing a powerful flash from the explosion. The object that hit Jupiter was so great that his collision with the planet caused a bright flash that was visible even from the Ground, as reported by the Express.

“I was incredibly shocked that I managed to capture this rare historic moment,” commented Ethan Chapple edition of the Science Alert.
Astronomer managed to take a collision with a conventional telescope. The resulting video he posted to Twitter, where it instantly became viral on the Internet. His post, he commented: “Filming today Jupiter. Shock flash looks terrible. It happened August 7, 4:07 GMT”. Next, in a separate message he added that “there are no visible marks from a collision with a mysterious object.”
Shock flash looks creepy
It should be noted that this video will help experts learn more about the wandering space objects in the Solar system and how their impact affects the planet. Despite the fact that falling space objects on the planet occur frequently, commit them can be extremely rare – it’s like hitting the jackpot in the lottery.
We will remind that earlier scientists were able to look “inside” of Jupiter. And last year on Jupiter discovered something paranormal.
