A rather remarkable event was observed in our Solar System last week. An amateur observer had the chance to witness the object crashing into Jupiter, the largest planet in our system. The crash was videotaped and uploaded to YouTube.

The posts shared by Luis Pereira, who observes space as an amateur, were watched by hundreds of thousands of people. The luminescence caused by the object striking Jupiter can be clearly seen in the video. Less than 100 per year The Brazilian observer, who caught this event, says he was very lucky.

The crash video shared by Luis:

The number of celestial bodies that strike Jupiter and produce enough light to be seen from Earth is seen 20 to 60 times a year. So it is not impossible for an amateur observer to witness this, but it is difficult. Brazilian amateur observer Luis Pereira, who witnessed the event first-hand, “I have wanted to record such an event for years. So when I succeeded, I was very touched” shared his mudollarsuluk. The collision that took place on September 13, judging by the scattered light was either too fast or too big. However, in the Jupiter photographs taken professionally after the event, no traces caused by the object were found on the surface of the planet.

Thibaut Humbert, Alexis Desmougin, Didier Walliang and Stéphane Barré of the Société Lorraine d’Astronomie were among those who recorded this collision. European Space Agency used the following statements along with the video in his Twitter post after the event: “Light on Jupiter! Is there anyone at home? There is not much information about the multiplier yet. But it is likely to be large and/or fast. ”
