    Default Jupiter impact event night from March 16 to March 17 - check your data!



    Just a heads-up to planetary imagers to check if you were out observing Jupiter on 2016-03-17 00:18 UTC. Two amateurs independently recorded a short flash at the time, most likely a small impact event. For more information see Jupiter hit by asteroid or comet in March 2016.

    This was about an hour after the end of the March 16 double shadow transit event. I got a photo of the transit but packed up too early for the impact (sigh).

    Also of interest would be photos taken 5-10 hours after the impact time, which might show an impact scar in the cloud layers.

    It appears to have been too small to leave a visible scar, several images have already been checked.

    By a coincidence that was my first night out with my new ASI224MC. I imaged only Jupiter that evening but unfortunately my first frames started at 00:49 UTC. I got pretty excited when I heard about the impact and realized that I was out that night. How cool it would have been to have captured an impact on that first night with a new camera!
