when India found loads of water on the moon only a few weeks ago.
Please provide a link to exactly where NASA said that small telescopes would be able to view the plume 30-90 seconds after impact.
Remember: * This event only lasts a couple minutes. Timing is key. Be ready. Know where to look and give your eyes some time to 'dark adapt' prior to impact time. * If you are watching through a telescope, you've only got one eyepiece. If there are a number of friends & neighbors out viewing using just the one telescope, it will be tough to share 2 minutes between 5-10 people. Suggest also having the website up or going to an event that can project the impact event for many people to view. Star parties are great because of the large number of scopes out, and you'll easily 'hear' when the folks with the bigger scopes see the event, but the same people-to-eyepiece ratio can exist & may be even worse. * This event is short (20-120 sec. for best part), low (2-10 km height) and dim (magnitude 6-11).
