Roberto Gorelli points our attention at a recently published meteor related paper:

Probable identification of the impact craters associated with two luminous historical lunar flashes

This article has been submitted by William Bruckman and Abraham Ruiz


Abstract: We have reviewed and analyzed the lunar luminous events observations by William Herschel during the peak of the Lyrid meteor shower of 1787 and Leon Stuart near the peak of the Leonid meteor shower of 1953, seeking the impact craters that these events presumably formed. Evidence is presented that identifies two cold spot fresh craters as the expected candidates.
