Lunar Impact 2013: NASA Records Biggest Explosion in the History

 On March 17, 2013, an object about the size of a small boulder hit the lunar surface in Mare Imbrium and it exploded in a flash nearly 10 times as bright as anything we have ever seen before, according to NASA's Meteoroid Environment Office. Recently, Design and Trend had mentioned about the Lunar Impact, and this is some extra information on the remarkable explosion.

NASA and University of Western Ontario all-sky cameras picked up a remarkable number of deep-penetrating meteors right here on Earth. NASA said that these fireballs were traveling along nearly identical orbits between Earth and the asteroid belt.

This means Earth and the Moon were bombarded by meteoroids at about the same time. The two events are related, and that this constitutes a short duration cluster of material encountered by the Earth-Moon system.
