Two amateur astronomers in Austria and Ireland each captured footage of what appears to be an object crashing into Jupiter on March 17.
Both videos show a flash of light on the side of the planet which could possibly be a comet or asteroid hitting Jupiter, Mashable reports. After Gerrit Kernbauer of Austria shared the video on the Internet, John Mckeon of Ireland thought to check back with his footage from that night and saw he had captured something that corresponded with Kernbauer’s images.
Now the work will be left to professional scientists to determine exactly what happened.
