This image of the aftermath of the collision of fragment A of P/S-L9 with Jupiter is similar to the violet (410 nanometer) image, except that the filter used enhances features containing methane.

The impact site is visible as a light streak and crescent-shaped feature, several thousand kilometers in size, in the lower left of the image.
