Description

Juhuu!!! 😃
I made over 800 pictures and number 298 luckily caught the meteor impact 👍
Exposure time was 4 sec with a 6 sec pause between the images.
Processing is just a few sliders in CameraRaw filter for color- and exposure balance and a little bit of denoising and sharpening.

Someone from NASA contacted me (I submitted the picture to APOD).
They want the Raw-Image and the exact time and location.😎
It's a project for his students. They are trying to demonstrate that it is possible to compute the distance to the Moon from seeing the time and location of this lunar flash from several locations on Earth.
Threre's now a video on YouTube too.
