Nothing to see but a spectacular frosty morning
Very glad to be out in it

Gotta agree with you Daniel.
I'm glad I set up too. We may not have seen it but we were there when it happened.
Venus and Mars looked very pretty rising above the trees too. (now I have that song locked in my head)

Jonathan did just fine...

... but saw nothing!

I noted the re-appearence of an 11.5 mag star a few mins ago, so if anything happened, it had to be fainter than than.

Good Morning everyone

Oh well.
I see you had a couple of people watching your live stream. So that's good.

Nothing here - clear & fffffrosty, but had a 'technical' malfunction which meant I missed everything (or anything)!!
Cheers -

Given the oblique angle, chances are that it fudded into a crater wall!

I gave up broadcasting on Ustream a year ago because of the adverts, but I noticed that they don't come up on an embedded page. Hmmmm.

No nothing from me either. Trotted up the street (to clear the trees) with trusty tripod etc and did a few high f stop time exposures anyway of the moon but if there was a flash I blinked. If none of you saw it through your scopes then I did not have a chance.

Nothing seen from Canberra and minus 5 to boot!

Put on all my warm clothes as it was minus 5 in Canberra . . .

Saw nothing so a quick spin onto Jupiter and back to my electric blanket.

Don't know for sure if I was looking in the right area.

Can someone confirm it, or how far out I was. Thanks.

Hi all,

I braved the cold as well, and got about 12 minutes of hand-held video through my scope starting at about 4:23 am. No sign of any impact, but like others have said it was fun being out there!

Cheers,
Stephen

FWIW, I was observing too but, no flash seen.

It's got me beat why they performed the de-orbit now, rather than wait a few days to get a crescent moon = less glare.
