During the eclipse of the moon on Thursday, May 15 I saw what I would call a UFO as it was a flying object and I could not identify it. The time was 11:54 PM Eastern Time and the object flew at high speed over Montreal from west to east. It was not an airplane as it did not have any of the usual strobe lights and did not make any sound. It flew in a straight line and could not have been a light shining on the clouds as it was completely cloudless at the time and there was no beam of light going up to it. The object was of a crescent shape and flew with the concave side forward. it emitted a white light which was steady and unchanging, somewhat clear throughout but a bit fuzzy at the edges. As I saw the object, it covered about 1/4 of the sky in about 5 seconds and appeared to be flying somewhat lower than the cruising altitude of a jetliner. I don't know if anyone else saw it and I did not notice any media coverage.
