Let’s Kick Up Some Moon Dust !

Join us in the Crane A/B rooms between at 0600 (event starts 0630)
with other early bird
AMSAT attendees for a Presentation and Live Simulcast of NASA’s Return
to the Moon – and an once-in-a-lifetime event of the Lunar CRater
Observation and Sensing Satellite (LCROSS) impact into the Cabeus
crater on the Lunar Surface estimated at 0730 EDT. The event will
showcase NASA documentaries on the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO)
and LCROSS missions, the Music Video “Water on the Moon” by NASA
Deputy Project Manager John Marmie and will shift to the live video
stream with commentary from NASA TV shortly before the actual impact
event.

As the best viewing of the impact site from Earth will be available to
ground based telescope located in the Mid-West and points towards the
West Coast we hope to see pre-recorded images/video clips well after
the impact event as it is relayed from observing communities. If such
images are available, we will post them during our open session.
Educators and Students can obtain digital copies of the presentation
materials from the host and can review “On the Moon” Educators guide
which contains learning activities for Students.
*In collaboration with NASA
