Large visible object on moon

We were looking at the moon with a medium -powered telescope when we noticed a large black object that appeared to be stationed on the surface. It was not like the "monilith" of 2001 but was more the size of a large N.Y.C. skyscraper. It had no features, but was quite obviously not a shadow of a crator and looked very unnatural. There were no reflections on it's surface. As the moon made it's way across the sky we checked to see if the object changed position. It did not- it was still on the moon and in the same place(we noted the position based on craters). My two witnesses were as unable as I to explain what we had seen. The next day, it was not there.
