Duration:45 minutes
Crescent like object spotted and slowly disappeared twice at two different locations in the night sky.

At 9:30pm I was driving south on I-25 looking west and saw what I thought was the crescent moon. However, there was then a line that came across the moon, and did not change as anticipated if it were a shadow, cloud or a power line. Then the moon began to slowly disappear. I first thought this was a lunar eclipse. However, as I continued my drive towards Albuquerque, turning south, I witnessed the same thing in the southern sky. This was in a different location, and the same crescent shape disappeared in the exact same way, with the same line across it. If this were an eclipse it would have reappeared rather than disappear again.
