a round object going from bottom to top of moon in 4 seconds

When I was 12, I was out in the yard with my dad and brother. It was around 7:00 PM. The sun was down but it was still light.

I happened to look at the moon because it was full and beautiful. As I was looking at it, something looked like it came out from behind the bottom on the moon, traveled up the side and disappeared behind the top of the moon.

I hollered at my dad and brother to look at the moon and they looked up in time to see it disappear behind the top of it.

I don't have a clue what it was but it must have been traveling at a tremendous rate of speed to go up the whole side of the moon in about 4 seconds.

I have always wondered what it was.
