An awesome supercut video from The Virtual Telescope Project by astrophysicist Gianluca Masi in Ceccano, Italy showcases fantastic views of the Super Blood Wolf Moon lunar eclipse of January 20, 2019. Well, our friends at Space.com said this: on Sunday, "Tonight's total lunar eclipse is occurring while the moon is near it's closest point to Earth for the month, which some call a "supermoon".
The roughly 37.9 million-square-kilometer surface of the moon is hit by an estimated 2,800kg of meteor material (rock and ice) each day. Although meteoroids have been filmed hitting the Moon before, lunar eclipses are often too bright.
If you missed the recent Super Blood Wolf Moon eclipse, you missed an extra special event, as for the first time, an asteroid was captured impacting the moon during an eclipse. This project went on to become the MIDAS survey, which is run by Spain's University of Huelva and the Institute of Astrophysics of Andalucia.

Having won the title in Sydney, the Czech came to Melbourne highly confident and roaring to reach the top. Of her terrible start on day eight she said: "Even though the [first] set was 6-2, it took an hour".
The impact was also confirmed by the Moon Impacts Detection and Analysis System (MIDAS), which uses telescopes equipped with high-sensitivity video cameras to continuously record footage.
"I had a feeling, this time will be the time it will happen", he told New Scientist. After one Reddit user asked what the flash might have been, astronomers across social media began sifting through video feeds of the eclipse, suspecting a meteor impact.
A lunar eclipse happens when the moon passes through Earth's shadow. Their software immediately logs the flashes and identifies their exact location on the lunar surface to an accuracy of about 0.001 seconds. "It was a very exciting moment because I knew such a thing had never been recorded before".
