Jupiter Over Atlantis July 17, 2009 11:50 PM

I was in the Bahamas this week at a resort called Atlantis. It was a great vacation but its nice to be home. The first night I got there I took the camera and tripod out to the beach to try and get some shots (couldn’t take the scope on the plane.) I took a few pictures of Jupiter on July 17, 2009 around 11:50 AM. This would have been two days before Anthony Wesley’s amazing discovery. Obviously there’s not enough magnification or detail to see anything important, but its kind of cool to know there was a giant asteroid or comet that was getting ready to slam into Jupiter. I took about 5-10 shots. If there is anyone out there that wants to examine the high-res RAW images to try to look for something leave me a comment and I will email you the pictures. I highly doubt anything would be visible as I was just using a basic lens but you never know. I’m not experienced enough to know what to look for, but maybe someone out there is.
