    The above page presents my quick analysis of favorable imaging windows to acquire the LCROSS-Centaur spacecraft during its cruise orbit one. 
    Lunar phases during cruise orbit one favor attempts to image the LCROSS-Centaur spacecraft by observers in the southern hemisphere between July 19 through the First Quarter Moon on July 28. Northern hemisphere observers are disfavored and have only a brief low-altitude imaging window before the First Quarter Moon of June 29 as LCROSS rises of the northwest horizon beginning on June 26.
