GRAIL Impact Follow Up

Hey Space Placers!

GRAIL A & B impacted a lunar mountain just around 5:28 p.m. EDT yesterday. I watched the stream from NASA live and the predicted flight path and impact were confirmed by Doppler readings.

The impact site has been given a name and you can read about it here: http://www.jpl.nasa.gov/news/news.php?release=2012-401

Thanks Ebb and Flow for all of the lunar data you returned to us.

NASA's new Moon mission and returning to the Moon tomorrow.
