Video imagery of the Lunar Crater Observation and Sensing Spacecraft as it successfully completed its swingby of the moon June 23, 2009. The video was recorded at one frame per second, alternating between LCROSSs visible light and infrared cameras.
LCROSS is being steered back into normal cruise mode. This swingby has provided a gravity assist into the LCROSS cruise
orbit. During this cruise phase, the operations team will evaluate the spacecraft’s health and status. The LCROSS spacecraft
won’t be “up close and personal” with the moon again until the day of impact on October 9, 2009.
