Slooh is running a live cam in the Canary Islands to check for if the impact left a scar of the sorts. http://events.slooh.com/

Really cool an Amateur Astronomer got the footage, and on an LX200 12"! Must have been a massive collision.

Anyone else an AA? I have a Meade LX800 that I used to run lapses on Saturn and The Orion Nebula through my laptop on crystal clear winter nights. Light pollution from downtown has made that less exciting, but I will go up to the mountains once every couple months and do that now.

Got a cousin in Charlotte who, not sure if he still is, was the main dude for Meck County Astronomers. Dude travels the world just for eclipses and showers etc.

we can only hope it ignites to become a second sun and scours the Earth of humanity before we do something worse ourselves...

For CAAC? Every time they meet I always have something I need to do. If he was out there for the Mercury transit (can't remember the park name, but it was off central), I did finally get to meet all of them though - including the head guy.

He had some insane gear. He might have even had a Max (http://www.meade.com/max).

sounds like him. he lives right near me but i rarely see him. ran into him at the HT Park road. He was walking in as I was walking out and we got to gabbing.
Of course he ends up talking about space. He goes pstall, the sun has been quiet. Get ready and walks off. umm...wait. what do you mean? lol

Ha, I will try to make it to a CAAC meeting soon and will mention it to him. His setup was astonishing, though. I think it was a Max with an additional 15k in modification - on top of his sun filter. I was floored.
