small triangular object viewed through 8" telescope while looking at moon

I was looking at the moon through my 8" telescope. I was using a 32mm eyepiece with a televue 3x barlo and a #25-A red filter. While observing the moon noticed a small black object moving around. I witnessed it changing directions and speed several times before leaving the view of the moon. The object appeared so small that a shape was not visible until it appeared to lean to one side where the lighting changed to reveal a triangular shape (as if it had wings). When the object looped around it would cover a distance of about one 30th of the view through my telescope. It turned 3-4 times and leaned over once over a period of about 10 seconds before leaving the view of the moon. This object appeared very small but VERY CLEAR through my telescope.


We spoke with this witness on several occasions, and we found him to be a credible witness. Please see accompanying illustration. PD
