Submission + - Hubble photographs new "scar" on Jupiter->

BearRanger writes: Calibration of new systems in the Hubble Space Telescope (installed in May by Shuttle Atlantis astronauts) were interrupted to take pictures of the new "scar" near the south pole of Jupiter. The scar is believed to have been caused by the impact of an asteroid or small comet with the gas giant. Hubble's return to service will be delayed by this interruption, but NASA says that rare events such as this warrant the delay. This is only the second recorded impact of an object with Jupiter.
