Moon rising

SMART-1 crashed into the Moon this morning. The Moon was unfortunately below the horizon in the UK at the time, but this afternoon I got a nice view of our largest satellite from the seaside at Bridlington. It was cool to think that just a few hours before, a spacecraft had crashed into it (the Moon that is, not Bridlington!). Some animations and images are now starting to appear on the web (via Ian).
