Does it seem like Jupiter season is in full swing yet? :)
Thanks to Anthony for discovering the impact strike, which I will faithfully call the Wesley Strike of '09 (he'll find more).
Seems to me yesterday morning was magical, something special in the air even drew out my son at 5:30. He woke on his own I swear! I did dress him quickly and dragged him outside for some help capturing this one and gave him some stellar 8/10 seeing views of Jupiter. Seeing was a bit better just before he woke up... more on those later. For now, here is his and my image! He pressed the start capture button and drove the scope around! ;)
Rest of the night and full 2009 season is here: http://maphilli14.multiply.com/photos/album/75/Astronomy_-_Planetary_-_Jupiter_2009
