daylight sighting,no wind, crescent-shaped object

My daughter had a snow day off from school, and I was outside shoveling while she played in the snow. At the time, the sky was clear with only a few clouds. There was little or no wind. She was laying down, making a snow angel, when she suddenly yelled excitedly for me to come over. I ran over as she pointed to the sky. I looked up, as she craned he necked backward to look behind her. I saw nothing. She described seeing something shaped like a "slice of watermelon" move in a straight line from west to east (I determined this from her position in relation to the front of the house). She said it was "wobbling funny." When pressed, I asked what color it was, and she said it wasn't green and red like watermelon, but gray with black holes along the bottom edge. I later had her draw a picture and she depicted a crescent-shaped object with porthole-like objects along the bottom. She also remembers a reddish glow around the object that then changed to either green or blue. This was a daylight sighting with little or no wind, and my daughter said it was "not as high as a jet but way higher than a bird up in the sky." She also admitted that she watched it for quite a few seconds in stunned silence before she was able to open her mouth and call for me.
