Jupiter on June 7, 2010 Hubble trained its Wide Field and Planetary Camera 3 on Jupiter on June 7, 2010 to search for any mark from the impact flash observed there by amateur astronomers on June 3. Hubble saw no mark, but the image also afforded an occasion to photograph Jupiter's newly whitened South Equatorial Belt.
