A New Flash Imaged on Jupiter

Aug 23rd, 2010 | By | Category: Blog

Masayuki Tachikawa was observing Jupiter early on the morning of August 21st (18:22 Universal Time on the 20th), when his video camera captured a 2-second-long flash on the planet’s disk.  Check out this article in Sky and Telescope.

The video of the flash is at this link and below along with an image captured by our own Randy Tatum just days after the flash.
