Cigar shaped object emerged from the moon in broad daylight

I was standing on my back patio at 4PM, looking at the moon in broad daylight when I noticed an object that appeared to be emerging from or behind the moon.

This cigar shaped object did not appear to get larger as it traveled westward across the sky and eventually dissapeared beyond the western horizon in a timespan of just over 1 minute and 45 seconds. It had no color, and appeared translucent.

There was no sound, no vapor trail, and there were no apparent lights on or near the object.

I could not estimate the altitude of the object, as there were no aircraft in the area as it traveled across the sky. It did not appear to be traveling lower or higher in altitude than a typical trans-continental commercial flight, but depending on the actual size of the object, its true altitude could not be determined.
