Astronomical Event1994The first fragments of comet Shomaker-Levy 9 impact on Jupiter. Prior to the first impact there are mixed predictions about whether anything will be visible from Earth. The first piece, fragment A dispels all doubts as it hits with a force of 225,000 megatons, throwing material 1500 km (940 miles) into space and creating an immense dark scar visible in small amateur telescopes.
