Dust cloud from SMART-1 impact

Phil Plait points out C. Veillet at CFHT also picked up the expanding dust cloud from the SMART-1 impact by subtracting the existing image of the moon against post-impact images. Animation here.

Even better: a wide-field video of the crash.

Full details at, from Canada-France-Hawaii Telescope / 2006.
