Impact on Jupiter

The web is abuzz today of an impact that occurred on Jupiter's surface VERY recently (last night sometime, maybe) Apparently there is a dark spot visible in Jupiter's southern region that may well be visible by larger scopes. To me, it looks bigger than a shadow cast on the surface by one of the Jovian moons. It should be visible over the next few nights. More info below...
