An identified object in the sky with a bright light hovering right above moon before a major category 3 hurricane (Irma).

On the night of September 9, 2017, around the evening hours of 8-9, I went to take a photo of an eerie moon peaking and hiding behind clouds. It was a calm breezy evening, basically the calm before the storm. When I took the photo, it was the night before the great hurricane Irma. Central Florida (East Orlando) where the photo took place was forecasted to be hit pretty bad by the hurricane on September 10, 2017, in the am hours into Monday morning September 11, 2017. The photo I took the evening of September 9 showed an eerie moon and a bright light right above the moon in the sky. When I took a picture of the moon with my cell phone camera I noticed the bright light above the moon. Living North of OIA Orlando International Airport, I see actual planes or helicopters all the time and this image did not look like anything I could identify in normalcy. As you zoom into the picture the bright light has almost a mushroom shape on top.

Interestingly, the area of Central Florida where I live was supposed to be pummeled by the storm, but fortunately my neighborhood and the adjacent neighborhood had minimal damage. Some downed trees and general debris from wind. It almost seemed that what I saw that evening in the picture (possible UFO), contributed some how to lessened damage within the radius of where the object could be seen in relation to the hurricane. I will attach the image with this statement.
