This is a 4070 angstrom image of Jupiter taken at 22:38 UT, July 16, 1994, from the 1-m on La Palma. The impact site of fragment A is visible in images obtained with the 1m Jacobus kapteyn telescope on La Palma from 22:38 UT onwards. Related cloud disturbances are also possibly visible, including a suggestion of a partial ring-like structure (not agreed on by all observers!) expanding into surrounding belts. However if real, then the later feature appears to be centered at a lower latitude than the impact site itself.
