Photos show strange disk moving across sky

I was photographing the planets and moon around 7 p.m. and noticed something moving across the sky. It moved very smoothly and was not a bird. It did not resemble a plane or a meteor.

I did not think much about it and assumed it had an explanation. With the naked eye it was only a tiny spot. Upon reviewing my photographs later, I saw through the series of photos an object moving across the sky - and in one photo there is a clear disk shape.

I am an amateur photographer so the photos are not great but I would love an expert to analyze them and determine what it was.

I am shaken by this - the photos are strange indeed. I was on my deck about one story high, shooting from my sliding door (toward the back yard).
