On July 19th 2009 an asteroid hit jupiter. These are the images, instruments were calibrated and detected hydrocarbons.... photojournal.jpl.nasa.gov
there are 8 images of this event.....

not 8 speculations about which fossils might have decomposed when...blah blah blah geologists claims about biomarkers from liquids abrading rock.

.we've been given a real time view of the creation of transition materials when two bodies collide......

the strata below this event was fractured, just like the fractures created by all earth impactors. These images detected and depicted the hydrocarbons at the surface, the new materials created, eventualy disappear as they migrate into the fractures to below surface levels. Just like our shales today, the oil rained down on the surface and spent the next millions of years as liquid particulates under pressure moving lower in a slow process of finding host rocks amenable to accumulation.

Nucleation created these hydrocarbons, more editorial about this event is at the post which this is a reply.

Outtake:
Plunging through Jupiter's atmosphere, the object created a channel of super-heated atmospheric gases and debris. An explosion deep below the clouds – probably releasing at least around 200 trillion trillion ergs of energy, or more than 5 gigatons of TNT -- then launched debris material back along the channel, above the cloud tops, to splash back down into the atmosphere, creating the aerosol particulates
