On 11 September 2013 the "Moon Impacts Detection and Analysis System" (MIDAS) camera captured a bright 8-second long flash on the central nearside of the Moon.

Couldn't find it in their previous PDS release (as I indicate here http://forum.moonzoo.org/index.php?topic=3.msg19920#msg19920).  Ironic that the latest PDS data release was likely done on Sept 8 and they only informed us on the ASU web site officially of the latest PDS release on Sept 16.  Robinson posted the finding on Sept 15.  So we COULD have scooped them again by finding this crater.  Wouldn't THAT have been grand!

Too bad I was busy.
