Watched the clip before commenting.
He caught something hitting and skipping across the surface like a rock skipped on a lake. Interesting.
The one thing he seems certain of is that it isn't a meteor/asteroid etc. He believes it's an "Object" not made of rock.
What he caught is anyone's guess but one can imagine if that thing got through our atmosphere at that angle and skipped across Earth...Wow.
NASA not commenting is the real mystery here.
I also find bats and birds interesting, even more so when they are caught on video silhouetting the Moon through a telescope.
This guy has definitely caught something of interest!
More like unbelievable. That is if you think this object is near the Moon. Seeing as how this is probably a bird and much closer to the Earth then the relative speed isn’t that great. Here is one estimate form ATS member Rob48 that puts it more into perspective.
The speed this "object" was going is incredible!
Then given the fact that no new craters have been spotted on the Moon really seals the deal on the debunking of this YouTube video.
Well from what I can see on this dreadful video it is crossing the apparent diameter of the moon in three or four seconds.
So that's what, about 1,000km per second, give or take, or about 2 million miles per hour.
.... or alternatively, a bird a few thousand feet up going at a few tens of mph

DarkSkyWatcher74 has captured, in real-time, an object impacting the Moon multiple times, producing craters, without producing any kinetic energy releases.
