Witness a Lunar collision for yourself

There are a lot of interesting events happening this month. We just had the Messenger encounter with Mercury, and the pictures that spawned the subject of bombardment. Now on the subject of bombardment...

The LCROSS spacecraft is going to crash into the Moon this coming Friday, 9th October. This URL gives the information: http://science.nasa.gov/headlines/y2...htm?list953548.

The crash is going to be invisible from Europe , but it looks like residents in the western part of the USA will get a good view with a telescope. But anyone can watch the live TV broadcast.
