Impact Dust Cloud
Analysis of images obtained at the CFHT by Christian Veillet have revealed a plume of debris thrown up when SMART-1 impacted the lunar surface.
The observations were made with the WIRCam wide-field infrared camera with 10s exposure time through an H2 narrow-band filter at 2122 nanometers with a 32 nanometers bandwidth.
Each image is approximately 2'x 2', equating to 200 km x 200 km.
