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.
