A blood moon is another name given to a total lunar eclipse, which happens when the Earth moves in between the sun and the moon.
Madiedo said lunar impact monitoring generally is conducted five days before and after a new moon, when flashes can be easily observed.
He doubled the number of telescopes the program usually has pointed at the Moon - from four to eight - and crossed his fingers.
After analyzing the recordings from the total lunar eclipse, the team realized they had filmed a meteor hitting the surface of the Moon. Then, some sharp-eyed telescope observers noticed a flash of extracurricular activity when a meteoroid created a bright pinpoint of light on the lunar surface. "I was really, really happy".
Such a scene has been long-sought by astronomers, but proved elusive until now, even with the frequency of lunar eclipses. "I did not want to miss any potential impact event", he explained in an email. "It was a very exciting moment because I knew such a thing had never been recorded before".
