    Based on the Horizons ephemeris data (for my o.p. at W111), it appears the outbound LROSS Centaur will not be observable during its trans lunar orbit phase over the next 4 days.  LCROSS is going to the Moon and the Moon is approaching the new phase.  During entire apparent orbit, the LCROSS Centaur booster will be less than 20 degs of the Sun.
