Moon strike?

Postby Thunderbird » Fri Mar 31, 2017 10:54 pm

Hello, I fired the scope up this evening and whilst scanning the Moon, I spotted a huge plume of dust from it. My observation was from the N hemisphere where the plume shot beyond the illuminated part - this timed at around 22:33 and disappeared quickly.
Anybody else spot anything?
Thanks.
