My God, It's Full of Stars!

Something "amazing" must be about to happen.

BTW, why did it take an "amateur astrononmer" and not NASA to notice this?

From The New York Times:

Amateur Finds New Earth-Sized Blot on Jupiter

NASA has confirmed the discovery of a new hole the size of the Earth in Jupiter’s atmosphere, apparently showing that the planet was hit by something large in recent days. The impact mark was first spotted on Monday morning by an amateur astronomer in Australia, who then drew the attention of scientists at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory to the dark mark on Jupiter’s south polar region.
