Lunar impact during the eclipse
During the eclipse, the moon has been struck by a space rock. A lot of people captured the impact. I looked through all my eclipse photos around the time of the impact and guess what, I caught it too.
I was lucky enough to have taken a photo at that exact time. One second earlier or later and I would've missed it.
The moon is being struck by space rocks very often but an impact during the eclipse is probably a rare thing to happen. It might not look big but for me it is.
