WXYZ previews a coming attraction: Meteor impact on Moon

One of the stories that I will be using in this week's space and astronomy news will be the largest lunar impact ever recorded by NASA.  WXYZ covered that news and their video Meteor crashes into moon's surface serves as a good preview of the NASA video I will include later this week.

Take comfort in the rock hitting the Moon instead of Earth and also that the Earth's atmosphere would have protected us from the full force of impact, although it would have made for a spectacular fireball.
