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.

Now the work will be left to professional scientists to determine exactly what happened.
