This booklet is the product of many scientists, all of whom have cooperated enthusiastically to bring their best information about this exciting event to a wider audience. They have contributed paragraphs, words, diagrams, slides, and preprints as well as their critiques to this document, which attempts to present an event that no one is quite sure how to describe.

I also need to thank all those who might have been omitted. The choice of material and the faults and flaws in the document remain the responsibility of the author alone.

The writing and production of this material was made possible through the support of Jurgen Rahe and Joe Boyce, Code SL, NASA, and of Dan McCleese, Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL).
