Hubble Captures Best Images Yet of Jupiter Collision

NASA interrupted testing the recent upgrades to the Hubble Space Telescope to examine the recent Jupiter collision.  Using the newly installed Wide Field Camera 3, Hubble was able to snap the best images so far of the collision.  Given that Hubble is not fully calibrated, these images are very exciting.  For more on these images, see NASA’s Hubble website.
