Impact visibility times?

Is anyone able to post an update to the times (like on IIS's front page) that Bird's Impact will be visible?

Thanks,
CL

I think this is right. Run for a few days previously it matched Iceman's figures

Having another public night up here tonight in Townsville for IYA.
I know Jupiter is reasonably close to the Moon all night, but will the impact site be visible between about 7-9 pm?
I see on the list below that 5/8 does not have times as such.
thanks

Edit - wasnt able to see it, but Jupiter pretty well lit by Moon. Try another time.
