A meteor hit the lunar surface on January 21, 2019 at the time millions of people were watching total lunar eclipse.

While not visible to the naked eye, this rare event was captured by telescopes operating in the framework of MIDAS survey at 04:41 UTC on January 21. The MIDAS Survey is being conducted by the University of Huelva and the Institute of Astrophysics of Andalusia, Spain.

The impact took place during the totality phase of the lunar eclipse.
