An odd "bubble like" unidentified, but seen by the naked eye; appeared close to moon during Super Moon Eclipse.

A friend and I were trying to get some good photos of the "Supermoon" Lunar Eclipse on Sept. 28th, around midnight. We were out on the balcony of our apartment and were using both my cell phone for pics and his out dated telescope to try to possibly take some nice pics of this cool event.

I downloaded 3 applications that would possibly have a telescopic or zoom affect on my phone for odvious reasons..the camera is terrible for far away pics. During this period of pics taken I did not use my friends telescope to capture photos ..only my phone.

The applications were a telescopic for telescope pics( can attach cell to telescope physically) and a so called filter or night vision app. and an app that flip flops dark and light..whatever the object being photographed the whiter or lighter colored object is reversed to black and the black object is reversed to white (easier to see in dark conditions).

I started to take pics noticing an odd "bubble like" object that kind of bounced in front of the huge glowing moon. It would be in front of the moon for a second..then to the right side diagonally and then in front like it was closer to me. This lasted about 15 min.'s.

In the beginning I thought maybe it was my camera reflecting the brightness of the illuminated moon. I wiped the lense over and over. The object was still the same shape and continued to become clearer. It appeared to look like a star when I looked by eye and when I looked through the camera on my phone, which was magnified it looked to be a clearish blue-tinted bubble and then turned a pale pink.

I believe there were two objects but the other disappeared and I was only able to really capture this single object. The photos are taken with 3 seperate apps but same cell phone. I cannot say what this was that I saw and I have no opinion to voice.

My friend and I were wondering if anyone else could shed some light on this "very cool" occurance. So glad I was able to share my pics.

Thank you.
