Reported: 6/11/2002 7:54:05 PM 19:54
Posted: 3/11/2003
Location: Patterson, CA
Shape: Light
Duration:20min
On May 21st from 8:35pm-8:55pm, Me and my wife were in my backyard and our moon was at half full, on the dark side of the moon towards the lowere left side there was a point of light on the edge of the moon. You were able to see it with the naked eye, as the moon went across the sky the point of light stayed in the same place from were we first saw it. I video tape the object, it did not move or changed in brightness I called my brother in-law who lives about 30 miles away and ask him to look up at the moon his first reaction was that it was a star, but I told him it has been in the same spot for about 20 min all-ready. I did not see when it went away or bliked out when I look up again about 8:55pm it was gone. If anyone could help me out on who I could show the video to that would be great. Thanks

((NUFORC Note: We suspect that the light may have been one of the bright planets, which currently are very prominent in the western sky during the early evening. We will look at the video. PD))
