Click here for today’s feature:

Last weekend an object slammed into the planet Jupiter. While the impact itself was unobserved, the resulting scar can still be seen by backyard astronomers. Jupiter’s growing black spot is now about the size of our own planet.

This feature with Dr. Donald DeYoung, Astronomer and Chair of the Physical Science Department at Grace College in Winona Lake, IN, looks at this giant of a planet and the impact event causing such a stir.

  1. I always love to hear Dr. DeYoung speak. He has great perspective.

  2. Thanks Dr. Deyoung for another of your great reminders – the providence and protection of God on the life He has created on earth.
