EVOLUTION OF AN IMPACT: Since July 19th, when Anthony Wesley of Australia discovered the scattered remains of a mystery impactor in
the high clouds of Jupiter, amateur astronomers around the world have been photographing the planet every night. "German astronomer
Hans Joerg Mettig has converted some of the best images into polar projections," says Theo Ramakers, "and I have stitched them
together to make a movie." Click on the image to set the scene in motion:

The 3-week animation, which begins with Wesley's discovery image and ends yesterday, shows the cindery cloud expanding, swirling,
and ultimately being torn into three pieces by turbulent south polar winds. "The spot has really progressed dramatically," says
Ramakers.

No one knows how the movie will end. Planetary scientists say the debris could evolve in interesting and unexpected ways before it
finally disperses some weeks from now. Astronomers who wish to contribute scenes can monitor the cloud near Jupiter's System II
longitude 210°. For predicted times when it will cross the planet's central meridian, add 2 hours to Sky and Telescope's predicted
transit times for Jupiter's Great Red Spot.



Weil es mir persönlich zu schnell ist, hab ich das mal langsamer eingestellt ;)
