"As it turns out, the eclipse was even more special than most observers had noticed, as the Moon was actually struck by a meteorite while everyone was gazing in wonder at its rusty appearance.
The meteorite itself wasnt terribly large, and is estimated to have only been around 22 pounds. Still, its impact was large enough to be spotted by observers as well as the automated MIDAS system, and thats pretty cool."
I caught it as well with my own equipment. The impact flash appears at 1:23:04 in my video at about the 8 o'clock position near the edge of the moon. This is the first time a lunar impact has ever been recorded during a total lunar eclipse.

Our sliding glass door rattled.
Awesome, LOL. Your post is way better than mine.
Space is a vacuum and thus you cannot hear a sound...which also explains why Democrats cannot hear anything.
I wonder how they KNOW it was caused by a meteorite?
More proof of Climate Change.
Similar flashes have already been traced to new craters on the moon by the LRO orbiter, complete with before and after pictures. This one will probably be located as well.
Has Ocasio-Cortez pointed out that it was really dark at the time, and hence the collision?
My friend gave birth to her second child, a healthy baby girl, right smack in the middle of the super wolf blood moon. Mom and dad say their baby girl was sprinkled with pixie dust!
Yup. Must raise taxes now.
A couple of the worst of the Flat Erf crowd got zotted a month or so ago.
I know, I was there :)
I kind of miss them. I got lots of laughs taunting them...
Hah. I don't remember who all was on those threads. I was only on one of them, when the FE dude got nuked. Found out about the other one the next day.
