Huge New Blot on Jupiter!

     There is so much more going on in the universe at any one moment than we can comprehend...

NASA has confirmed the discovery of a new hole the size of the Earth in Jupiter’s atmosphere, apparently showing that the planet was hit by something large in recent days... New York Times Link

  1. Poor Jupiter. I wonder if the hole will allow scientists to see better through the atmosphere. The size of the earth, wow, that will make quite a crater. I remember Shoemaker-Levy. I guess, as the guy who found it says, “If anything like that had hit the Earth it would have been curtains for us, so we can feel very happy that Jupiter is doing its vacuum-cleaner job and hoovering up all these large pieces before they come for us.” Thank God for Jupiter.
