I was taking some pictures the other night of the lunar eclipse. In one of the shots, there was an extra detail......

Meteor strike? Thoughts?

Here are a few other pictures from that shoot. The last 3 were used for the composite shot above.

Great photos!, definitely looks like a meteor impact. I Remember when i had my 12" SC watching levy-shoemaker impacts on Jupiter that had the same appearance of your shots.

does not look like an impact...

there was another individual that came out on the science channel a few weeks ago... was also doing several high res pics of the moon a few years ago...caught what appeared to be a rather large reflective area that was only there for a minute or two... turned out he actually did capture an impact, rather the image of the high heat explosion emitted... he called up some others (nasa maybe? other high power observatories?) and eventually he did get it confirmed.

only a before and after comparison at very high magnification of that exact area can verify, looking for an impact crater... but by the pics cant tell of any pot mark left behind, could have been something caught in the image....given the scale of the black puff, your looking at over a hundred mile radius in that image, you would expect to have seen some sort of flash that dimmed, just like those when the comet frags hit Jupiter.

but I'm sure you can get that verified.... other wise maybe it aliens.

showing a preference will only get you into trouble, 90% of everything is crap...

Great photos.
Sorry to say, it's not an impact, there is 7 sec between shoots.
If an impact that size did occur it would have left a plumb for many 10's of minutes or even a hour, since there is no air to slow down the debris, and lower gravity, the plumb would have remained longer, and would have reflected more light.

It appears to be some type of debris blow past the camera as the photo was taken due to it being out of focus

I don't think it was debris blowing by the camera. There was no wind, it was near zero degrees Celsius so there were no bugs, and the focus plane of the whatever it is seems to be the same as the surrounding moon surface. It's not sharp because I just used a camera with a zoom lens. ......not an observatory. .....and needed to crop quite a bit to get what you see.
I agree an impact plume would likely hang longer.....so I don't know what it is.

Very interesting, hope you can get some confirmation on what that was.

I think about the hereafter. I go somewhere to get something, then wonder what I'm here after ?

Google is your friend but I had heard about the ISS Moon transition before it happened. Some great shots there.

Generally those type of things are a bird or bat that flew past the field of view. Possible a plane flew by. That type of thing.
