This trio of three lamps was our first prototype.
The middle one is called: “Jupiter, waiting for the impact” with two 5 Watt LED Warmlight.
The two outer ones (Two 3 Watts LED Warmlight each) represent some parts of the Comet Shoemaker-Levy 9, discovered by Carolyn Shoemaker and her assistant David Levy. The Comet broke apart in July 1992 and parts of it collided with Jupiter in July 1994, providing the first direct observation of an extraterrestrial collision of Solar System objects.
This generated a large amount of coverage in the popular media, and the comet was closely observed by astronomers worldwide. The collision provided new information about Jupiter and highlighted its possible role in reducing space debris in the inner Solar System.
These lamps are now hanging in our house Jupiter: www.sunnyhousessamalisland.com/house-jupiter
Our first three lamps are dedicated to Carolyn Shoemaker, born in 1929, the most successful “comet hunter” to date: she has discovered 32 comets and over 800 asteroids.
