Watch: Record-Breaking Lunar Impact
24 February 2014 11:15 am
It may look like just a miniscule white dot, but this video offers you the chance to glimpse the largest lunar impact ever recorded. A meteorite the mass of a small car collided with the moon at 61,000 kilometers per hour on 11 September 2013. The impact created a bright white flash that could be viewed on Earth by anyone who happened to be looking that way, according to the Royal Astronomical Society. For those who missed it, check out the big bang—equal to about 15 tons of TNT—here.
