I sure wish I had a scope back then for that
one. <very long sigh>
small refractor out back to take a look,
but was watching TV while they acclimated.
They put the live pictures on the television
from either the Hubble or an observatory
so I went out back and looked. No one knew
what to expect as far as visible "hits" was concerned. The obviousness
of the impact areas shocked me. More and more
it looked like Jupiter's atmosphere was behaving
more like a liquid mix than a gas mix.
