If the meteor was bright enough to see from reflected sunlight before it hit the moon than the impact would have been far greater in brightness and a new crater(miles across) would be visible from the Earth. The actual brightness of the impact implies that the object may have only been a foot or so across and would be invisible to us before impact from 240,000 mile away.
