|Thought it was a star next to the moon until it started to move
Another viewer on this site reported July 23, 2015, from Titusville, FL, exactly what we saw on August 22, 2015 at around 8:20PM. The picture this person took is EXACTLY what we saw! It was a clear evening sky around 8:20 PM and 3 of us were in the backyard eating, having great conversation. I looked up at the moon and I pointed out the bright star next to the moon. My wife and our friend looked up and saw the bright star.
I continued to look at this bright star while my wife and friend continued their conversation. Then the bright star started to move. I told my wife and friend to look at what I thought was a star, that is now moving.
We first observed this object slightly to the right of the moon. It then started to move left and passed in front of the moon. Once it passed the moon, it stopped for a few seconds and then continued its path slowly pass the moon until it just faded away.
