The huge amount of cometary matter ejected by the collision of comet Tempel-1 with Deep Impact at 05:52 GMT this morning, has triggered a steady stream of observations and images by ground- and space-based telescopes around the globe.

The update will also include 5-minute highlights edit of the Deep Impact NASA-TV coverage, and of the post-mission briefing at JPL at 08:00 GMT this morning.

This ESA TV Update will be replayed at 16:00 GMT, with any new images added at the top of the feed.
