    NASA to Bomb Moon in Search for Water

    NASA is bombing the moon this coming friday in search of water. This may be visible from Earth, so get your cameras ready and see if you get a cool shot!

    That's funny, I just got done responding in the other double post. It is possible that you may be able to photograph it. It is going to impact on the south pole area, and they are saying the ejection could be as much as 50km out....

    Yea, thats why I posted it here in the first place lol. I wish i could get a good shot but its going to be too bright here, and i dont really have a lens to shoot the moon that close. I was just hoping i could see some of you get it.

    I live in Scotland so when the moon is out at 7:30 AM there
    It will be 11:30 AM here,


    1. I'll be in college
    2. It'll be too bright and the moon wont be visible.

    bah I guess I'll look forward to seeing your pics!
