In this mosaic the L plume is rising over the limb of Jupiter on July 19.
The Uppsala group, consisting of Mats Lindgren, Hans Rickman, Per Magnusson and Johan Lagerros and also Göran Scharmer from Stockholm were observing the collision events. The telescope used was the solar telescope of the Swedish Royal Academy of Sciences, at La Palma (Canary islands).
The advantages of using this telescope are that it is equipped with a combination of hardware and software which enables us to obtain both very high time resolution 'films' of the effects on Jupiter's visible cloud tops, as well as high spatial resolution (<0.5 arcsec) of the entire disc.
