Gorgeous Kaguya image of Cabeus crater; where to watch impact

I'm back online and ready to watch LCROSS smash into the Moon this morning! Just in time for the crash, JAXA released a gorgeous Kaguya Terrain Camera image of the crater. But before I show that to you, here's a reminder of where to watch the action this morning:

Here is the Kaguya image at half its original resolution. Cabeus is the biggest black hole; Cabeus A is at about 11:00, Cabeus C at about 10:00. Go visit JAXA's website (that link takes you to a Google-translated version) for the full-resolution image.
