I don't know about never skipping, maybe if the impact angle was close to parallel with the surface it would skip a little, but it would never skip across the face of the moon like that. Remember it's not flat, it's shaped like half a basketball and the way the physics works out it just wouldn't skip across most of the visible surface of the moon. So no, it doesn't look anything like a skipping meteor.

Not sure, but he seemed reeeaaaallyyyy sure that there would have been no skipping meteor.....
I personally think it looks remarkably like a skipping meteor.

All the rest, his claims of a permanent crater..lies or simply lunacy. I am tending towards lunacy when I see someone makes a 20min video on Youtube about a bird flying through the field of view.
