ENORMOUS SIZE CRAFT OBSERVED DISSAPPEARING BEHIND THE MOON !!

ABOUT 7:45 PM ON THE EVENING OF JULY 22, MY WIFE AND I WERE SITTING IN THE BACKYARD IN OUR SWING, ENJOYING THE FEW MOMENTS TOGETHER BEFORE I HAD TO REPORT FOR MY THIRD SHIFT JOB.THE MOON WAS ABOUT FORTY-FIVE DEGREES ABOVE THE HORIZON AND AT THAT POINT WAS ABOUT ONE AND ONE-HALF INCHES IN DIAMETER. WE SAW A BRIGHT LIGHT APPEAR IN THE SKY ABOVE THE TREELINE IN THE SOUTHEAST. WE AT FIRST THOUGHT THE LIGHT WAS ONE OF THE NUMEROUS PLANES THAT FLY OVER OUR COMMUNITY. ALTHOUGH THERE WERE CLOUDS IN THE SKY, THERE WERE NONE OBSTRUCTING OUR VIEW OF THE MOON AS IT WAS A PERFECT CIRCLE WITH NO SURROUNDING HAZE. THE LIGHT SLOWLY ASSENDED TOWARD THE MOON AND DISSAPPEARED BEHIND THE MOON AND NEVER RE-APPEARED ON THE OTHER SIDE !! THE OBJECT WE SAW WAS ABOUT 1/8TH INCHE IN DIAMETER, AND ABOUT 1/10TH THE SIZE OF OF THE DIAMETER OF THE MOON AT THAT TIME. CONSIDERING THAT THE FULL DIAMETER OF THE MOON IS ABOUT 2140 IF IN FACT IT WAS ATMILES, THIS WOULD SUGGEST THAT THE OBJECT WE SAW WAS ABOUT 214 MILES IN DIA.METER
