    Interesting video taken on the 17th March which is now on You Tube clip showing a transient bright flash on the limb of Jupiter:

    Was it just me, or is the point spread function for the “event” tighter than that of the moon seen on the extreme image right?

    Any dusty debris seen by imagers subsequently?

    It certainly looks like the bright flash of a meteroid entering the atmosphere.

    But I have not read any mention of the event anywhere on the internet.

    I hope to image Jupiter this evening, so I will have a look and see whether there are any unsual markings.
