Sissel was just going to take a picture of the moon ...
I thought that there was something wrong with the camera
Was it a meteor that landed on the moon in the same second that Sissel Kamsvåg took the picture?
Night Tour at Big country was eventful, for the image of the moon taken at 21 o'clock Wednesday night, showed something more than just the beautiful moon.
It was the strong, beautiful moon that made me take up the phone and snap a picture. But when I zoomed in on the image afterwards, I saw the glowing orb. I initially thought that there was something wrong with the camera, but then I saw online that it was a meteor swarm that had passed the moon. There were several further south in the county that had seen a bright light, says Sissel Kamsvåg.
Now she wonders if the image shows a meteor strikes the moon, as it also happened on May 17 last year when 1:40 pound large meteor hit the moon and made a powerful flash of light that could be seen without a telescope from Earth.
