There seems to be circulating information about a possible lunar impact during the recent lunar eclipse. Sky and Telescope is reporting the impact in the region of Mare Humorum at 4.41.38 UT. One of our Newcastle astronomical society members has an image which he feels could be an impact, timed at 4.42.01 UT. Anyone else find anything from their images? I have looked through my images but so far haven’t been able to spot anything.
Tom – I was imaging the Moon during the eclipse, at this point with 5s exposures every 30s but I missed the impact at 04:41:38 by 8s. The timestamps in the attached half-scale images are the start of exposure (note the filenames are when the file was generated which is a few seconds after the shutter closed) and should be accurate to 0.1s or so. If there was another event at 04:42:01 I would have missed that by around 1s.
