Tune In For Lunar Crater Hunt

Hey Space Placers!

To follow up on my blog on the 18th regarding the recorded lunar impact, on May 22 SLOOH will try and find the new crater.

In a live broadcast, the SLOOH team will broadcast live an attempt to search Mare Imbrium for the newly created crater. Viewers can tune in at 9 p.m. EDT to watch the search for the estimated 200-foot wide crater.

Get details here:

It will be a challenge to see the crater from Earth. I do not know if Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO) has been programmed to fly over the area and photograph the lunar surface to find the crater although I hope this has been done. It would be very useful to get high definition/resolution images of the new crater.

I'll keep you posted.
