Video shows meteoroid hitting moon

Meteoroids and other "lunar impacts" apparently hit the moon all the time, but rarely are they caught in the act on video. This clip, posted on NASA's site, shows a meteroid hitting the moon as recorded with a 10-inch telescope. The May 2 collision may not seem like much on the screen, but NASA says it carried the impact of four tons of TNT.
