Default Mystery spot on Jupiter

Why are they treating a spot on Jupiter like it's so mysterious and uncommon?

Anybody check the lens of the camera for a spot or bug?

Good point, Rat. Looking at the picture it doesn't look any different then the
many barges that have appeared in the past.

Some speculate it is the aftermath of the Galileo spaceprobe auguring into
Jupiter....It does seem likely to me it is an impact site, much like the
Shoemaker/Levy impacts...


Could be an impact. But Galileo? No way.

Maybe it's the shadow of Planet X...

Is this the spot? I didn't check, but assumed it was a Moon shadow.


No shadow transits were occuring at the time indicated (5:50 BT, Oct
21) according to the simulators.

Hmmm, once this week-long impenetrable night-time cloud deck moves off
Toronto, I'll have to take a look.
