  1. I can confirm that a huge chunk of Jupiter detached itself and is currently sitting on the CCD of my camera. I took some shots of the Moon and there was a big shadow at the same location as the Jupiter flash. Now I just have to get it off without making the contamination worse. Shame though, a flash this bright at Jupiter could only have been caused by an event orders of magnitude bigger than the Shoemaker-Levy impact. I could have been famous
  2. Apologies if this is in the wrong place, or my etiquette is off, this is my first post on here I was setting up my 5" reflector on Monday night (21/09/2020) when I noticed a bright flash in the vicinity of Jupiter. Anyone any idea what it could be? I initially assumed it was a satellite flare, or possibly an optical effect within the scope, but it's odd that it is so close to the planet. Apologies for the quality of the video, I'd just started to set up; focus the camera and set the exposure. The camera is a cheap webcam mod and I'm using the free version of SharpCap 3 Jupiter Flash.mp4
