Man witnesses orange ball of light pass across the disc of the Moon.

Telephoned Report: An adult male called from Omaha, NE, to report having witnessed "an orange ball" pass across the face of the full Moon. The object moved from his left to right (east to west), as he faced the Moon, and he estimated the (apparent) size of the object at approximately one twentieth the (perceived) diameter of the full Moon.

The witness reported that the object was seen against the disc of the Moon for approximately 1-2 seconds, and it seemed to disappear as it departed the disc, and continued moving to the west.
