Amateur astronomers in Australia and the Philippines both captured an amazing experience on Thursday when they watched a cosmic collision on Jupiter. Anthony Wesley, a computer programmer from Australia, and Christopher Go of the Philippines, both observed a bright flash on the surface of Jupiter and were in the right place at the right time.
Anthony Wesley's video of the collision on Jupiter was uploaded to YouTube; you can see the amazing footage above.
Implications - Stargazers capture some of the most stunning cosmic collisions ever. The collisions captured here are from Jupiter. The telescope used was an infrared one that is located in Hawaii. These are truly some unbelievable photos that give professional astronomers a wealth of information to include in future studies.
