I only saw from right peripheral so I could be partly mistaken. But what it looked like to me was that a round, dim orange object hit the side of the moon from the south. Approximately an eighth of the diameter of the moon or somewhat smaller. Fast, approaching exactly horizontally from the south. Hit the moon hard but without causing any visible movement of the moon, and apparently without causing a crater, and then fell away partly backward and disappeared from view. As apparently another object about the same size and at about the same moment zoomed closely past the far side of the moon heading north. I'm mostly sure there were other witnesses. At around 8:45.

Still hoping only that everyone remains safe.
