Jupiter was hit by a comet

Given NASA's images, astronomers believe that Jupiter was hit by an object, possibly a comet.

NASA images show a tear from the giant planet's south pole.

The images, obtained on Monday by the infrared telescope of the U.S. space agency in Hawaii, appear at the 15th anniversary of another collision with a comet.

In 1994, Jupiter was bombarded by fragments of comet Shoemaker-Levy 9.
