My friend and I were in the backyard next to the fire. I looked up and next to the moon I noticed a round whitish silvery object. I said. Is that Venus? the Planet? he looked up and asked where I said there, to the left of the moon past the clouds passinig by vertically. They were stratus clouds. I got up and moved and when I returned he said. "It disappeared." it must have been a ufo.

I did not believe in them before but now I do. We kept looking up and it did not come back. It was very very high in the sky. it looked like a dot next to the moon.

((NUFORC Note: Object may have been satellite, although that is a guess. If the object was, in fact, moving, it was not one of the planets that currently are in proximity to the Moon during the early evening. PD))
