Lunar meteoroid impact during eclipse

According to “Spaceweather”:

“A METEOROID HITS THE MOON DURING LUNAR ECLIPSE: On Jan. 21st at 04:41:43 UT, a meteoroid slammed into the Moon. We know this because so many people witnessed the explosion. It happened during a total eclipse of the Moon, visible from five continents.”

Did anyone catch it?

  1. No, I was taking photos as 1 minute intervals so I didn’t catch it but I got some reasonable pics. I’m doing a brief slideshow at the RAG meeting tomorrow then I’ll upload all the pics.
