Watch a Meteor Smack the Blood Moon in This Lunar Eclipse Video!

January 23, 2019 8:52 AM | April Duffy (Administrator)

This weekend's stunning lunar eclipse seems to have come with a little extra flash, thanks to a brilliant coincidence — a burst of light at about the time totality began, marking the end of a meteorite's journey to the moon. The meteor strike takes place in the region darkened by Earth's shadow, as you can see in videos of the eclipse at Space.com.
