Shoemaker - Levy Impact Archive

In July 1994 a comet called Shoemaker-Levy 9 was approaching Jupiter. This comet splitted into fragments and these fragments crashed into our biggest planet: Jupiter. This event was closely observed not only by professional astronomers but as well by lots of amateurs.
In this archive reports and pictures of this event can be found. Currently I do not have much new stuff about the impacts but I'm working to get more.
If you have suggestions, complaints or some stuff (additional links) for this archive just drop a line to smil (at)
