Did anyone actually see the impacts/plumes on the moon this morning? It was after sun-up in the east, and my telescope isn't quite as big as was being suggested, and we were in the midst of getting kids on the bus, so I ended up watching on CBS Early Show, which was less than satisfying.

____ Double D, Out here in the woods we get TV from DirecTV. They have the NASA Channel it is basically the feed that the Networks used. From what I saw and had read, they did not get the debris field that they expected.

____ I did find a link this morning.

Yeah, after I posted I gathered that it wasn't nearly the visual event they thought it might be, even if that wasn't much. Looking at the pics on the link you sent, it's little wonder. That is a tiny explosion! I guess I've been conditioned by too much CGI sci-fi to expect a huge fireball or something. Then again, I'm glad I wasn't standing next to it....

Thanks for the reply!
