Jupiter does it again!

Via SpaceWeather.  Amateur astronomer Masayuki Tachikawa of Kumamoto city, Japan, has recorded another fireball on Jupiter – confirmed by other observations.  Like the last time, there doesn’t appear to be any impact scar in the atmosphere.

Here’s the short video showing the impact.

That’s one less potentially dangerous object for us to worry about.

All hail our friend and lord, Jupiter!  Keeping Ogdy at bay…

For now.

For over 20 years, Slugger has been an independent place for debate and new ideas. We have published over 40,000 posts and over one and a half million comments on the site. Each month we have over 70,000 readers. All this we have accomplished with only volunteers we have never had any paid staff.

Slugger does not receive any funding, and we respect our readers, so we will never run intrusive ads or sponsored posts. Instead, we are reader-supported. Help us keep Slugger independent by becoming a friend of Slugger.

While we run a tight ship and no one gets paid to write, we need money to help us cover our costs.
