LCROSS will go BANG on the Moon this Friday

But we in Australia (New Zealand, South-East Asia) won't see it. The Lunar Crater Observation and Sensing Satellite will crash into crater Cabeus this Friday at 11:30 UT, that's 22:30 AEDST, 22:00 ACDST and 20:30 AWDST. Unfortunately from our point of view the Moon doesn't rise until after 11:00 pm (23:00 AEDST). NASA's viewing guide is here. NASA TV will cover the impact starting at 10:15 UT, that's 21:15 AEDST, 20:45 ACDST and 19:15 AWDST. Be prepared for the intertubes to be jammed though.

Science is almost scary sometimes.
 
How dissapointing, the media really hyped it up, well suppose that is their job.
Maybe I will wait till the Lunarian tactical response. Might see something then.

if you blinked you might have missed it, kind regards, CometAl
 
I really hope that there are no bad effects from bombing the moon. It just seems insane.
