Wow! Jupiter’s Black Eye As Seen By Hubble
Just a very quick post. They got a picture of Jupiter’s recent collision with the Hubble Space Telescope.
Wow! Look at that detail! This was taken by the Wide Field Planetary Camera 3 (WFPC 3, or “whiff pick” if you want to sound cool) which was installed on the mos recent servicing mission. The camera has not been fully calibrated yet, but they couldn’t pass up this opportunity so an imperfect image is better than none (although its hard to argue with this image too much!)
Now if only these clouds would clear so I can try to shoot it here!
