That's either a typo or an ambiguity in that mission summary. I've heard and read multiple other sources say "6 miles" and they have been saying that for a while.
I'm sure most would agree with me that they heard the plume was supposed to be 6 miles.
it has already been established that the plume did not go as high as expected
I don't see how that is evidence that the impact didn't happen.
and if you could see an (estimated) 20-meter crater prior to the 49 second mark, then you have good eyes.
It just means that something unexpected happened.
since these events do regularly occur, have
photographs been taken of natural impacts?

Ok... somethings going on. Something really strange:
SO this morning I looked at this and watched the video, hoping to see the big impact. But what one of the NASA people said on the video was very interesting, near the end of the video, a woman said something along the lines of "we're getting thermal readings from one of the craters". I thought the moon was inactive...
Not just that... the whole article has been changed. There was a whole paragraph with a heading something like "Roads on the moon". Apparently as the probe got closer, the NASA people remarked that there seemed to be a road system. Now, that part is gone.
Also, the impact "was expected to throw some 350 tonnes of debris up to altitudes of 10km (6.2 miles) or more." That could easily been seen by a home telescope, right? Especially a high-end one.
Anyone that read this before it got changed respond. I know what I read.

Mark my words people, you may all laugh now.
But when it rains cheese tomorrow, you'll all know the truth.
Bring the rain, cheese rain.
I hope its Mozzarella cheese. I love that stuff.
speaking of "Phage or SGiP" .. where are they?
If the moon was gone we would know by now -_-
