Comet Shoemaker-Levy 9 Collision with Jupiter

[ Impact Images | Other Images | Information | Web Sites | Comments | SEDS Page ]

On 1994 July 16-22, over twenty fragments of comet Shoemaker-Levy 9 collided with the planet Jupiter. The comet, discovered the previous year by astronomers Carolyn and Eugene Shoemaker and David Levy, was observed by astronomers at hundreds of observatories around the world as it crashed into Jupiter's southern hemisphere. This Web site is here to provide some of the images taken by amateur and professional astronomers before, during, and after the events, and to provide more information on this historic event.
