Cometary rendezvous

NASA's Deep Impact space probe is approaching its target; Comet Tempel 1. I haven't really mentioned it here as others, such as Tom and Ian, are doing an excellent job of keeping us informed of the current status.

Impact will occur at about 5.52 am UT 10.52 pm PST on Monday July 4th. Unfortunately, Europe won't be able to see the impact, as we will be on the wrong side of the planet at the time. Typical! Luckily, the wonderful people at NASA TV (satellite and web) and ESA TV (satellite) will be broadcasting the event live, so you can still watch it. You will also be able to see frequently updated images from Kitt Peak Observatory.
