Lunar Meteorite Impact During The Eclipse of 01/20/2019
This image was taken from our home, located in northern Arizona, at 9:42:32pm during the Lunar Eclipse.
At that time, as the Earth's shadow painted the full moon's face a deep, rusty red, a wayward meteor smashed into the lunar surface. The collision's aftermath - a brief flash of light at the bloody orb's darkest edge - lasted just long enough for some viewers to spot.
I did not see the flash of light because I was too intent on taking pictures.
A couple of days later, while I was looking at all the pictures that I had taken, I noticed, in this particular image, a white speck on the upper right side of the moon.
I sent this photograph to National Geographic for their input.
