    Not dealing with VISIUAL observing, but interesting:
    NASA has released their "Summary of DART Accident Report"...
    "NASA released a summary on May 15, 2006, of the findings about why its Demonstration of Autonomous Rendezvous Technology spacecraft did not complete its mission and collided with the intended rendezvous satellite on April 15, 2005."
    Article, with link to full report in pdf format, can be found here:
