Shape: Circle
Duration:60 seconds
Silent, fast moving, extremely bright orb crossed in front of the moon.

This UFO made no noise, left no vapor trail, was as bright as Venus which I also saw rising in the east. It came from NNW headed ESE as it crossed in front of the moon. I watched this for about 60 seconds and I couldn't see it anymore. It was moving as fast as a commercial jet would move but a jet would make noise and wouldn't be that bright. It was like a spotlight, very bright, as bright as the moon. I also spotted a conventional aircraft moving in a parallel path to the object but about 30 degrees distant. The plane was obviously a plane and the UFO was obviously NOT a plane.
