All of the main news sites said it was a bomb and bye bye to the moon. Complete oblivious citizens of our society! There should be a supervisor correcting that type of reporting. Space is over looked now a days and it's so sad. People only care about Jon and Kate Plus 8.

Good luck with that. I'm assuming you are referring to the observatory grade equipment? Millions.
If you are speaking of a telescope you can get at wally-world, it isn't powerful enough to observe anything of note on the moon.
Even the observatory grade scopes can't determine much of anything on the moon other than serious geographical features... like large mountains and craters.

I totally agree. This is what I was thinking... If they want to see if there is water. Why not fly some people to the moon. We did it way back then, should be very easy for them now.

Here's a pretty good summary care of Universe Today:
The Centaur impacted the Moon as planned, but the visible results were less than spectacular. Luckily the instruments and sensors aboard the shepherd probe worked well and much data was collected. It will take at least a month or so to analyze the data. Reports aren't expected before December.
Images have not yet been released from all of the assets viewing the impact.
