Ok, the weather tonight is just too nice not to have the scope out.  About 2055, 12Apr2024, I was looking at the terminator line on the moon.  I had out my 8inch, F4.9 using my Hyperion IV set to 24mm.  I was just enjoying the shadows and the details when I think I saw a meteor strike in the vicinity of Mare Imbrium.  A bright spot that lit up for just a moment.  I pulled away from the EP to see if I possibly saw something flying overhead and I didn't see anything.  So I have to ask, did anyone else see what I am describing?
