Date: 1993 - 1999
Has there been any changes in the date of the proposed collision of
the comets that are supposed to collide with the planet Jupiter?
The October issue of Astronomy magazine has a brief article
about the upcoming collision. As of press time for that issue
(which was mid-July) the date is July 20, 1994. It's probably
too early at this time to estimate the hour at which the first
of the comet fragments hits Jupiter, but because there are a
number of large fragments strung out like a "string of pearls",
there will be several collisions that will occur over the course
of roughly one earth day.
