UFO Streaks Past the Moon

Tonight, I had mounted by Zakura astronomical binoculars on my tripod to watch the moon. It was partly cloudy, but the moon could be seen clearly for a few minutes every 10 minutes or so. I was watching the moon for maybe two minutes when I saw and oject zip by. If you can imagine the moon as a clock face, the object zipped from the 2PM position to the 11 o'clock position and out of view into the night sky. It was black...and left sort of a motion trail. It was too small to really get a visible on shape or size. I don't know if it was a UFO, but cannot think of anything else it could be given its trajectory path.
