Jupiter Collision

The planet Jupiter shows evidence of having being hit by a large object, either a comet or asteroid.

A dark mark has appeared in its atmosphere towards the southern pole.

It was first seen by Australian amateur astronomer Anthony Wesley on 19 July, and was then quickly followed up by others including the US space agency.

How interesting that none of the networks picked this up! Most are still covering Michael Jackson's death.... The president's news conference pre-empted news coverage locally, so don't know if this is even worth a sound bite to them...
