|Ball of light seen above full moon while moon was blacked out and then appeared again.
Looking toward the South from my balcony, the moon was in "full" phase. It was a cloudy night and there were white clouds. I observed something dark quickly passing from the top of the full moon to the bottom of the moon (like a curtain), completely blocking out the moon, then the darkening would go back up, and the moon would suddenly be visible again. The full moon would be completely visible for only a few seconds, and the process of the darkening would repeat. This happened several times for the 20 minutes I observed. Also, there was a ball of white light (smaller than the moon, but larger than a star or planet) slightly above the moon. Then all this stopped, the ball of light was gone, and the full moon was in full view. I watched for another few minutes after that, and no more unusual events took place.
