I recorded on a 8mm camcorder, a round/disclike object moving across the face of the moon....twice!!!

I had decided I was going to try to video tape the moon thru my Meade ETX90 telescope (which didn't work as well as I hoped). I was looking thru my 8mm camcorder, which is looking thru the scope at 48X magnification (not too much). The moon was East/SouthEast at the time. The approximate point in the sky of the moon was Right Angle 0hr15.0m and Declination -3*37 degrees.(I couldn't find the degree character on my keyboard). I then see a round object with no lights or distingquishing marks move across the face of the moon in a straight type of motion. It made no sound, no strange anything at all, just a round/disclike object going across the moon. I am highly interested in UFOs and such, so I immediately thought it was strange. I was recording, so I have it on tape. I still wanted to mess around and see what I could get on tape of the moon, so once again I started to look at the moon as I had done just a minute or so before, and I SAW THE SAME THING AGAIN, GOING IN THE SAME DIRECTION! I don't know if it was the same object or a second one, but I did see 2 round dislike objects, at 2 different times, which had no lights or anything, they were just round, black and moving across the face of the moon. I couldnt tell how far away these things were, and I didnt have a chance to see them with the naked eye. I was recording when I saw them, so I have them both on tape. I will try to send you a vhs copy of this event. I do not claim this to be a spacecraft, or meteor, or satellite, or meteor, or anything else. I am just a amatuer astronomer who saw something weird. I have tried to use some deductive reasoning to come to some conclusion. And my conclusion is that it simply is a UFO. No doubt about it.
