Hello,

Just came in from watching Jupiter and still under the impression of the impact.

Time index : about 22:39:27.495 to 22:39:29.444UT (still need to match exactly).
Location: equatorial zone east of the ZM
Light flash duration: 2.0 seconds
Filter 742nm
Instrument: 408mm Newton, ASI 178m, 2x Apo-Barlow from Celestron

I quickly shot a RGB sequence to see what else in color.

I am curious about the images.

@HPaleske

 

Hi Harald,

 

You caught the impact discovered independently by José Luis.

Could you please share the video (and acquisition software configuration) with me, this is extermly important for our scientific studies.

Please contact me by private mail ( delcroix punkte marc at free punkte fr).

Thx!

So the Sep 13 2021 Jupiter impact was captured at 2239 UT. It was generally centrally located on Jupiter. Would the impact site still be visible three hours and forty minutes  later or would the impact site have rotated out of sight by then? I started recording at 0230 UT just that much time after the impact. Maybe I can check for impact scars in my recordings if the site was still in view. Thanks in advance.

No it would have past the horizon point about 2.5 hours after the event.

Indeed. From Harald's and Jose' Luis's images the coordinates of the impact should be about L1=87, B"=+0.6 (measured in WinJupos).

 

The area was still visible when I set out to observe yesterday evening almost two hours after the event. Jupiter was still very low, seeing not too bad but transparency quite poor (it got overcast soon after). I could not detect any anomaly at the eyepiece, nor in the short clip I took with my 10" newton. I was just doing some testing, here's all I could squeeze from a handful of usable frames. The small cross shows the impact site.

Nice capture!!!!! Always good to get at least 2 captures for confirmation!

 

I plan to look in the area with CH4 and UV to see if it left anything in those wavelengths. I do not expect to see anything. My hunch is the object came straight in and disintegrated very quickly, but it's always fun to look. Heidi Hammel said that Hubble won't be looking for it after Damian Peach's great image of the area a couple hours showed nothing.

The area of impact should be on the CM about midnight EDT (0400 UT 9/15).

Can you point me to a source for Hammel's statement and the image?

Great, and fortuitous, capture! Dang, I get laid up for a minor medical thing and miss stuff running into planets! Thanks for sharing!

Congratulation capturing this. I was almost able to observe this live, but got lazy due to bad seeing and called in a day two hours prior the event bawling.gif

Hi all,

 

Thank you very much for your many replies.
I am very happy that I was some of the few observers who could observe this event. It was kind of a reward for the weeks of effort to get usable results on Jupiter. Although my priorities are on the Sun, I will observe the planets more intensively in the future.

I will save the data permanently and evaluate them better (WinJupos). A small movie and a picture sequence of the light flash should be created.
It would be interesting to see what the professionals get out of such observations. I would be interested in the energy, which is connected with such an explosion.
