New LCROSS impact target Cabeus: Mosaic of 4 images taken by the Advanced Moon Imaging Experiment (AMIE) on board ESA’s SMART-1 mission. The SMART-1 images forming the mosaic have been taken at different epochs with different illumination conditions, in January 2005 from a distance of 1037 km and on February 2006 from a distance of 622 km.  The SMART-1 AMIE mosaic size is 100 km.  The dots at the centre of the image indicate the impact points for the LCROSS Centaur stage and shepherd spacecraft well placed within the shadowed area.
