ESA press release: New NELIOTA project detects flashes from lunar impacts

Using a system developed under an ESA contract, the Greek NELIOTA project has begun to detect flashes of light caused by small pieces of rock striking the Moon’s surface. NELIOTA is the first system that can determine the temperature of these impact flashes.

"Its large telescope aperture enables NELIOTA to detect fainter flashes than other lunar monitoring surveys and provides precise colour information not currently available from other projects," says Alceste Bonanos, the Principal Investigator for NELIOTA.
