Centaur separation, as seen by the infrared camera on LCROSS.

LCROSS Centaur Separation occurred at 9:50 p.m. EDT (6:50 p.m. PDT), Oct. 8. After separation, the spacecraft performed a 180 degree pitch maneuver (turning around) to reorient the LCROSS science payload towards the receding Centaur.

Only a few hours now.

All those who believe in telekinesis, raise my hand.
