While we were ooh-and-aah’ing, and shivering, Sunday night watching and photographing the Super Blood Wolf Moon and Total Lunar Eclipse event, a small meteorite struck the moon right in front of our eyes at 11:41:43 p.m., ET, just before the eclipse totality started.

It showed up as a brief sub-second flash in videos, but a few eagle-eyes noticed the flash. From there, it was a race to confirm whether the flash originated on the moon or from some more mundane source on Earth. The flash was verified in multiple videos captured in different cities and continents, thereby confirming that this was the first recorded sighting of a meteor strike during a full moon and during a lunar eclipse event.
