I suppose this is as good a place as any to ask; has Luna 2's impact site been seen by LRO, or is it even possible? A search didn't tell much, it would be nice to see the oldest artificial crater on another object (1959)!

Hasn't been found as far as I know, and I would not be surprised if it's location is highly uncertain.

No problem re Luna 20, Phil. Rather than post it publicly initially, I was giving you some thinking time!

Your 2007 position was a really good interpretation from the somewhat fuzzy horizon hills, I thought. And the main error was in range to the horizon, so the analysis of the skyline was pretty spot-on.

Good detective work updated by new data. It's so fascinating to see all this stuff emerge from its previous obscurity.
