Flash duration of the satellite was 8 seconds from the Earth its brightness was comparable to the brightness of the North Star. That is the phenomenon of falling meteorite could be observed even with the naked eye.
“This is the biggest and brightest of all blow ever observed on the Moon” – said Professor Jose Madiedo.
Scientists estimate that the diameter of the asteroid was from half a meter to a meter and weighs 400 pounds. Crashed into the moon asteroid at a speed of 61,000 kilometers per hour, and left behind a crater with a diameter of 40 meters, which is equivalent to 15 tons of TNT explosion, according to usatoday.com.
This cosmic phenomenon has attracted the attention of scientists force of the explosion and subsequent flash duration, as previously recorded the largest asteroid , collided with the Moon, weighed 40 kilograms.
