And in the eclipse when moon, earth and the sun forms their positions, the earth at that time blocks the sun and there are just the silvers of the light which makes through the atmosphere of the planet and then that is more towards the moon. Even a small meteoroid can create a bright flash when it hits the lunar surface. For many years he and his colleagues hoped to see the impact of a meteorite on the moon during a lunar Eclipse, but it is quite hard - hitting lunar meteorite has been filmed before, but not during the Eclipse.

Madiedo said it's the first impact flash ever seen during a lunar eclipse, although such crater-forming impacts are common, the Associated Press reported.

Madiedo observed the meteorite flash through Spain's Moons Impacts Detection and Analysis System, also known as MIDAS, which is run by the University of Huelva and the Institution of Astrophysics of Andalucia.

He doubled the number of telescopes the program usually has pointed at the Moon - from four to eight - and crossed his fingers. The ring that is basically of light which is made when the sun rises and sets and the lights which are directed on earth at the specific moment in the time and this is the light which makes the moon to appear in red color that basically are for the people who are on earth seeing it. "I was really, really happy when [it did]".

"We've mitigated the impact by augmenting staffing, rerouting traffic, and increasing spacing between aircraft as needed". White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said the president had been briefed on the situation.

The astrophysicist tells New Scientist that he estimates the size of the meteorite to be about that of a football and the weight to be about 2 kilograms (4.4lbs). Wait, it's a meteorite hitting the moon? "In this way, these flashes are well contrasted against the darker background".

A 'super blood Moon' eclipse might sound cool enough, but the total lunar eclipse of January 2019 has now gone down in history.

The next lunar eclipse will only be a partial lunar eclipse, visible from South America, Europe, Africa, Asia and Australia. It's just never happened during a lunar eclipse so it's all very exciting. "I did not want to miss any potential impact event", he explained in an email.

"I was exhausted when the eclipse ended-but when the automatic detection software notified me of a bright flash, I jumped out of my chair".
