Explosion On Surface Of The Moon, Don’t Be Alarmed

A meteoroid struck the surface of the moon recently, causing an explosion  that was visible on Earth without the aid of a telescope, NASA reported Friday.  But don’t be alarmed if you didn’t see it; it only lasted about a second. “It exploded in a flash nearly 10 times as bright as anything we’ve ever seen  before,” said Bill Cooke, of NASA’s Meteoroid Environment Office.“It jumped right out at me, it was so bright,” said Ron Suggs of the Marshall  Space Flight Center. It glowed like a 4th magnitude star, NASA says, thanks to an explosion  equivalent to 5 tons of TNT.

Cooke reports don’t be alarmed by explosion because you can’t blow up the moon..
