CAUGHT ON VIDEO: Car-Sized Meteorite Crashes Into Moon And Creates The Brightest Lunar Explosion Ever Seen
The energy released by the impact is comparable to a little over 15 tons of TNT (three times higher than the largest previous confirmed impact) and the bright flash that resulted lasted more than 8 seconds, according to the study. The explosion was so bright that it would have been visible to people on Earth."At that moment I realized that I had seen a very rare and extraordinary event," Jose Madiedo of University of Huelva, said in a statement.
Below is video footage from the record-breaking blast. The bright white flash shows the impact.
