Hi Folks,
I understand that a European satellite that was circling the moon is 
scheduled to be crashed onto the moon at 0543 UTC tomorrow morning  (3 Sept 
in the UK).
It is claimed that the impact and cloud of debris thrown up from the moon 
should be visible through a small telescope or binoculars, if anyones

Too bad for us here the moon will not be full for us here and the darken part seems to be where the 
point of impact will be located :(

Thank's if the sky is OK i will give it a try just in case i can be lucky.
