Kitt Image of Jupiter


Video image of Jupiter made on the KPNO 4-Meter telescope, July 19 at 8pm MST, by KPNO astronomer Ken Hinkle and JPL astronomer Ed Cohen. The image is seen in blue-green light; the image is inverted with south at the top. The black rings on the upper portion of Jupiter are the sites of comet impacts that have taken place earlier this week. The impact sites cover areas about the size of the planet earth.
