From Spaceweather:

LUNAR FLYBY: Tomorrow morning, NASA's LCROSS (Lunar CRater Observation and Sensing Satellite) spacecraft will fly by the Moon and send pictures back to Earth from only 9000 km above the lunar surface. The purpose of the maneuver is to put LCROSS in an elongated Earth orbit and position it for impact at the lunar south pole later this year. Live video streaming of the flyby begins at approximately 5:20 AM PDT on Tuesday, June 23, 2009.



How exciting!! will I be the only one awake with VCR recording at 0:dark-thirty?

Go to www.spaceweather.com and click on the link to watch.

Maybe.......... just maybe...... it will be....... amazing

Dare we even hope there is something "they" are going to show us? Something wonderful?


yes, we DARE!

Well, I for one think the Moon is pretty wonderful just as it is.

I completely agree Soylent and that's why I'm so excited at the probability of seeing LIVE footage. I figure the worst case is that we get to see more of our beautiful satellite.

I think it's somewhat bold of NASA to do a live streaming video of the flyby. I hope it's not a video that focuses on the LCROSS (Lunar CRater Observation and Sensing Satellite) rather than the moon itself.

cheers

can someone PLEASE video this and upload it here on ATS PLEASE PLEASE?!

Ok I'm truly obsessed now - I'm actually begging for footage of the moon on a forum - oh why did I ever take that red pill?

I guess, there's always wishful thinking, but IF they've been doctoring images all this time then the images would have to somewhat match what they've showed us before.

I'm sure we're about to have a fresh batch of Lunar rorschach tests saying...

Do you see what I see?


Doesn't that rock look like A Face, A Bird, A Tree, Ect... Ect...

Good info though. S&F

I can't imagine what purpose that would serve on the moon, especially if the U.S. government isn't yet ready for disclosure. I can see a false-flag ET attack on the US, I suppose.

thanks for that...... funny. I don't have the capability of transferring VCR to computerable media, and I don't have a DVD recorder, so this will have to be picked up by somebody else.

I'm just recording in on the VCR because (a) I'm a foilhead, and (b) in the event it is claimed that something incredible was shown and then we are unable to get the footage. If that happened, I think I could take the videotape down to our local tech guru and get it copied to a DVD.

I expect it'll be on youtube or perhaps *gasp* on NASA's site in its entirety.

I expect that's true ....... but what the heck, eventually one of the anomalies has to pass muster. I think some of the things MikeSingh has brought to light have been truly amazing. I hope this is a true high def video we're going to see. Maybe ET will make a cameo.

I can hope.

Great find! I'm setting my alarm for 7:20am (cst). Can't wait to see this!!!

Seriously, thanks for posting this. I would have missed it otherwise.

You can sign up for email alerts on Spaceweather. I would have missed it too!

From NASA:

The LCROSS spacecraft and its spent second stage Centaur rocket will make multiple maneuvers to pinpoint its instruments to the moon. The large yellow frame partially hidden behind the moon represents the Field of View of the visible light camera whereas the narrow yellow beam represents the Field of View of the spectrometers. During the first 30 minutes of the coverage, the spacecraft will stare at three targets on the lunar surface for 5 minutes each, with short slews in between.

The spacecraft will be closer to the moon at the beginning than at the end of that half hour. During the latter 30 minutes, the spacecraft will do limb crossings of the moon. The first half hour will be most interesting for the camera view. The latter 30 minutes will only show very intermittent snapshots. The real-time, telemetry-based animation will remain up-to-date, although things do move slowly.

Thanks for that, Majorion! Just an hour and change to go


I was assuming yesterday that this would also be featured on the NASA channell; thus my intention to tape it. I don't see it scheduled on the NASA channell, and I don't have the computing power to copy it live. Well, hopefully someone will be able to, or NASA will archive the entire hour-long exercise.
