Yet again Jupiter becomes site of cosmic collision, show separate videos from citizen scientists

Two amateur astronomers have come up with separate videos that show an asteroid or comet crashing into Jupiter on March 17. John Mckeon and Gerrit Kernbauer have captured the videos in different parts of the world.

Experts said that Jupiter is the largest planet in our solar system and it is very common for it to be bombarded by space rocks on regular basis. Astronomer Heidi Hammel said that he has seen both the videos and can affirm that Jupiter has been again the site of a cosmic collision.
