The meteorite influenced the Moon during total lunar eclipse


Unlike us on this side of the world, people in North America, South America, Europe, Africa, and large parts Russia all were recently treated with a spectacular view of the total eclipse of the Moon – one popularly described as "super blood wolf", due to the fact that it was the first full month of the year, really pretty red, and supermun. If it was not cool enough, the review of the Moon's image revealed that the meteorite had been hit during the eclipse.

Although this may not be a catastrophic event that you imagine in your head, it is potentially the first time that the meteor has been recorded during the eclipse.

Jose Maria Madiedo, astronomer from University of Huelva u Spain, confirmed that the tiny flash captured by the telescope was indeed a meteorite effect, estimating that it had a mass between 2 and 10 kilograms and the size of football.

You can see the impact on the video below:
