Mother and two children witness peculiar bright light near Moon, which is seen to accelerate suddenly.

Telephoned Report:

A woman reported via telephone that she and her children witnessed a very peculiar, very bright light in the vicinity of the Moon for a few minutes, or so. The children reported to the mother that the peculiar object suddenly accelerated, and shot "straight up." One of the children is very interested in astronomy, and stated to his mother that the object was not Jupiter, which could also be seen quite close to the Moon.

The witnesses will submit a report in the near future.
