Hubble pictures Jupiter's 'scar'

BBC NEWS | Science & Environment | Hubble pictures Jupiter’s ‘scar’.

Hubble has trained its new camera on the atmospheric disturbance on Jupiter believed to have been caused by a comet or asteroid impact.

The telescope used the Wide Field Camera 3 fitted on the recent shuttle servicing mission to capture ultra-sharp visible-light images of the scar.

The dark spot near the gas giant’s southern pole was noticed first by an amateur Australian astronomer.
