In short, there is buzz in the astronomy world about what looks like an apparent first ever detection of an asteroid collision in the asteroid belt. Looks like a comet, but then again, not.
Here is a link. Also Google "P/2010 A2 LINEAR" and check the forums...too faint for amateur observers. The pros seem very intrigued and concerned about getting enough eyes, even spaced based telescopes trained on it.
Anyway, reminded my of the opening scene of "Forge"...and we all know how that turned out! Put your "Trevor Hicks" hat on!

Interesting! Let us know if moons start disappearing. Thanks, Tim...
