Fig. 1


First three fireballs found on Jupiter from observations by A. Wesley (top panel), M. Tachikawa (middle panel), and G. Hall (bottom panel). Arrows show the position of the impacts. Images have been processed by stacking the frames where the flash is visible and adding the result over a Jupiter image built from the stack of the full video of the planet at the time of the impact. The color in the first panel comes from acquisitions obtained with a filter wheel in the minutes before and after the flash. The color in the second panel comes from the detector, which makes use of a Bayer mask to produce color images. The diffraction-like ring patterns in the last panel show the brightest flash.
