Location: Ocean City, MD
Shape: Cylinder
Duration:15-20 seconds
In the night sky while sitting on deck in Ocean City, MD overlooking the Atlantic Ocean with my 40 year old daughter, we saw a cylindrical object with light at left side of the cylinder cross in front of the moon from south to north creating a shadow on the moon as it passed. We were dumbstruck and discussed it at the time. Once it passed the moon we could no longer see it. I have posted many questions on the internet trying to find other people who saw it with no luck. I cannot believe we are the only people who saw it since it was a beautiful night; the moon was full and, no, we were not under any chemical influences.

I am a retired high school teacher; my daughter is currently a stay-at-home mom who recently worked in a financial institution.
