Earth had a temporary second moon? 

February 9, 1913. 
On this date, a strange meteor sighting occurred over Canada, the U.S. Northeast, Bermuda, and some ships at sea, including one-off Brazil. What happened that night is sometimes called the Great Meteor Procession of 1913, and it sparked decades of debate concerning what actually happened.
Some astronomers later concluded that – because all sightings of the meteor procession occurred along a great circle arc – the source had been a small, short-lived natural satellite of Earth – a temporary second moon.
