University of Wales Images of Fragment DGRS Impacts


July 28. These images were taken from 19:50 Universal time to 21:54 U.T. The 13 images cover 2 Hours (upper left to lower right), seven days after the final visable fragment hit jupiter.

The Equatorial zone can be clearly seen as well as the north and south equatorial belts. Some storms are just visable in the NEB.

The dark features in the southern hemisphere are due to impacts from fragments of the comet shoemaker-levy 9.

They seem to be impacts due to fragments G/D/S and R (Rotating out of view),followed by Q1 then H(which finally rotates out of view), followed by E( rotating into view). The red spot also crosses the disk but is not very clear.

Images Taken using a 25cm Schmidt-cassegrain telescope at U.W.C.C . CCD data were taken with a lynxx CCD camera. Images processed to bring out featues.
