The Shoemaker-Levy 9 spots on Jupiter: Their place in history
Earth, Moon, and Planets
Historical observations of Jupiter were studied in a search for descriptions or depictions of spots of a magnitude comparable to that produced by the impacts of comet Shoemaker-Levy 9 fragments with Jupiter in July 1994. No such record was found. With the possible exception of the Great Red Spot, the Shoemaker-Levy 9 "G" spot appears to be the most prominent jovian spot in history. © 1994 Kluwer Academic Publishers.
