    Hubble Images Suggest Rogue Asteroid Smacked Jupiter



    Link: HubbleSite - NewsCenter - Hubble Images Suggest Rogue Asteroid Smacked Jupiter (06/03/2010) - Release Images

    Without warning, a mystery object struck Jupiter on July 19, 2009, leaving a dark bruise the size of the Pacific Ocean.
