Shape: Circle
Duration:45 sec
A large bright orange circular object was seen close to the moon that moved and dissappeared behind the moon..

I saw a large bright orange cirular shape at approximately 7 o'clock position near the moon. At first I thought it was a planet,since it was stationary for several seconds. The object then began to move NNE towards the moon and appeared to "dissappear" behind the moon and emerge at 1 o'clock. The object then continued to gain altitude, still moving NNE, and then it was no longer visible. The object appeared white and very small when it emerged from behind the moon.
