the moon apeard far to north of its usely path and moved so fast that it could not be moon as I know it.

It was a very bright cool clear night in march. I was standing on the north side of the home I was living in at that time. The front of my home faceies the west and sits just to the east of the aircrafe approch to the Huntsville internation airport. I see small to very larg air craff daily. I had step out on the front porch for a smoke and decided to stept in to the shadows on the norht side of the house to releave my self. As I stood there, facing north looking stright up in the night sky, a full moon with what seam to be a thin clod cover apeard just 15 deg. (approxaly) to the right of were I was looking.For the first few secands (1 or 2 maybe 3) I did not realize that the moon was to for north form were it normal path is. Then I notice also how fast it was travling for east to west. It took a approxaly 15 to 20 secands to go from 15 degs to my right to 15 degs to my left. Then it disapered completly. I told my wife of what I had seen and one or two others. I supose it may have be a reflexion, but who knows what it was?

((NUFORC Note: Date is approximate. We agree with the witness that the Moon should not appear in the northern sky, when viewed by a person in the Earth's northern hemisphere. PD))
