Big Island of Hawaii while watching the lunar eclipse, witnessed a large glowing ball darting in the sky

My husband and I were up late to see the lunar eclipse, as the moon got darker; we noticed a large white glow two to three times the size of the moon. The light was moving at a remarkably fast rate going back and forth from east to west then north to south; it would stop and almost jiggle at a point that was straight up. No apparent pattern was noted. There were some clouds in the sky, we could see the light whether it was under the clouds or in a clear section of the sky. We do know that others down a few acres saw this also, we could hear them saying “Oh my god do you see that? What is it?” We have not confirmed this, as we live in an area with large acreage and lots of it is jungle and forested.

This lasted for approximately 5 minutes, it went down slowly behind the trees, about 6 blocks away, there are no houses where it went down.
