More details on this event (including the above article in full and the ESA press releases) can be found in the Exploring the Moon thread.

Do you have a scope?

It's been raining here for hours, and it's supposed to be cloudy and rainy for the next two days...

I might have had a good view of this... not sure. It was clear here last night, but I was out by 9:30 pm PST.  (3 yr old twin boys do have a way of tiring one out! LOL)

Anyway, I found a report that gives a glimpse of what it looked like--

"You can view a CFHT animation of the Moon images it recorded the impact appears in one frame."
