NASA's latest mission to the Moon, LADEE - Lunar Atmosphere and Dust Environment Explorer - is coming to an end. See my previous blogs in September 2013 for background on the mission and the actual launch.
NASA has a contest you can enter to try and guess the actual date and time that LADEE will impact the Moon.
LADEE has been very successful with gathering a wealth of data that should tell us a lot about the Moon's atmosphere and dust environment.
I will be leaving tomorrow on my cruise aboard Oceania Cruises' ms Riviera for 14 days of giving astronomy/space exploration lectures and hosting star parties. I will try my best to blog daily so keep checking.
