Analysis of Moon impact flashes detected during the 2012 and 2013 Perseids
(European Southern Observatory, 2015)
We present the results of our Moon impact flash detection campaigns performed around the maximum activity period of the Perseid meteor shower in 2012 and 2013. Just one flash produced by a Perseid meteoroid was detected ...

Lunar impact flashes from Geminids : analysis of luminous efficiencies and the flux of large meteoroids on Earth
(Oxford University Press, 2015)
We analyse lunar impact flashes recorded by our team during runs in December 2007, 2011, 2013 and 2014. In total, 12 impact flashes with magnitudes ranging between 7.1 and 9.3 in V band were identified. From these, nine ...
Multiwavelength observations of a bright impact flash during the 2019 January total lunar eclipse
(Royal Astronomical Society, 2019-07)
We discuss here a lunar impact flash recorded during the total lunar eclipse that occurred on 2019 January 21, at 4 h 41 m 38.09 ± 0.01 s UT. This is the first time ever that an impact flash is unambiguously recorded ...
