9:50 pm EDT (6:50 pm PDT): The LCROSS Centaur separation was successfully completed, followed by a 180° flip by LCROSS so it could begin a 4 minute 5 second burn to slow the spacecraft down. LCROSS was then set up to follow the discarded Centaur rocket toward the moon. LCROSS is now 4 minutes behind the rocket.

The image to the right is an infrared view of the Centaur as it receded away from LCROSS.
