Description

I looked my photos right after hearing about the meteoroid impact but didn’t see anything and forgot about it. Then tonight I was looking at APOD which was a photo of the event and after seeing right where the impact was, I took another look at my own photos time stamped around the right time. There on a 15 second exposure shot at 10:41:32 CST there it is. Sweet….

I discounted this image at first because of the over exposure, but if not for the long exposure I would have missed the event.

I reprocessed this image by adding a second 4 second exposure to bring better detail in the over exposed area on the moon. Photomatix Pro 5.1 was used to preform the HDR process.
