Anthony Wesley catches a live one this time.

Last year amateur astronomer Anthony Wesley of Australia captured the first view of the result of an asteroid hitting Jupiter.  This was again in the news just today with some new Hubble images.
Now just as those shots are released, he seems to have captured a live one hitting Jupiter and exploding! 
Christopher Go (a well known planetary imager) in the Philippines confirmed it also.  Not a lot of info just yet on this, we'll have to see what is seen when the planet rotates and shows it latest pock on it's face.
There are videos on the sites listed below, but be patient, they seem to be getting a lot of hits for obvious reasons - and are a little slow to download.
