Duration:15 minutes
UFO passed through my field of vision while viewing a full moon through a high powered telescope.

As I looked through my telescope at a full moon, I took a break and returned to see a large stationary shadow covering as much as 1/4 of the moon's surface. I ran to get a second witness, the second person looked through the telescope and also saw the large shadow. After about 15 minutes passed I noticed the shadow to be moving across the surface of the moon. As it moved across the surface it also began getting smaller, as if the object casting the shadow was moving further from the surface of the moon. When the shadow reached the far end of the moon, it moved into dark space and I was able to see the shape of an object moving through space, but could not make out detail. It definitely appeared to be moving under it's own power!
