      Dear colleagues,

      The SMART-1 spacecraft, of the European Space Agency, which is currently in
      the lunar orbit, will crash in a programmed impact against the Moon surface,
      on the dark side of the first quarter moon in its visible side, next to the
      terminator, at the south of Mare Humorum, in Lacus Excellentiae, on 3 Sept,
      2006, at 01:26:24 UT (with uncertainty of seven hours for more or for less).


      In Brazil, the Secção Lunar da Rede de Astronomia Observacional - REA
      http://www.reabrasi <http://www.reabrasil.org/lunar/> l.org/lunar/ (which is
      directed by Ms. Rosely Gregio - rgregio@uol. <mailto:rgregio%40uol.com.br>
      com.br) , is developing and coordinating a nationwide observation project
      named SL/REA SMART-1 Lunar Impact Project which is coordinated Valmir
      Martins de Morais - valmirmmorais@ <mailto:valmirmmorais%40yahoo.com.br>
      yahoo.com.br, Member of the International Campaign Moon SMART-1 Project:
      Predictions and Observation Campaign Campaing - ESA Science & technology –
      SMART-1, and of the Team of Observers of SLRBr (Lunar Section / REA-Brasil).

      Please, check the data, images and updated graphics of SL/REA SMART-1 Lunar
      Impact Project, in the Secção Lunar da Rede de Astronomia Observacional
      –REA/ Brazil.

      This is not a definitive work. Some data will be submitted to changes due to
      the spacecraft orbital corrections, which will be performed by the ESA
      mission control. Soon, these necessary corrections will be published.

      Very important: here in Brazil, all the researchers who are currently
      working and will still work at observation projects of the impact need EVERY
      possible image captured of the region of the impact. Please check the area
      in the sites above.

      The images captured will be essential for analyses, study and calibrations
      of the observations that will be performed during the impact. Capture,
      please! Publish them in the forums in order that everyone will be able to
      see them and send them to me too, preferentially the original images with
      and without modifications, to my e-mail valmirmmorais@
      <mailto:valmirmmorais%40yahoo.com.br> yahoo.com.br, writing the data of the
      observer (name, institution, location, latitude, longitude, and altitude),
      data of the acquisition of the images (type of camera ccd or webcam,
      videocam, digital instruments or other means, time of exposition,
      parameters, etc.), information about the telescope (type, specifications,
      f/, filters used, etc.) and time in the universal hour in order so we can
      analyze them accurately, send them to Dr. Bernard H. Foing, Chief Scientist,
      ESA Research and Scientific Support Dept., General Coordinator of the Moon
      SMART Impact: Predictions and Observation Campaign - ESA Science &
      technology – SMART-1,
      and also publish them in our homepage with all their credits.

      Please, send them to Valmir Martins de Morais – Coordinator of the SL/REA
      Smart-1 Lunar Impact Project valmirmmorais@
      <mailto:valmirmmorais%40yahoo.com.br> yahoo.com.br or Rosely Gregio –
      Director of the Lunar Section/REA-Brazil rgregio@uol.
      <mailto:rgregio%40uol.com.br> com.br.

      We do need everyone’s cooperation.

      "Astronomy is Colaboration”.
