I was in my front yard looking at the Super Pink Moon with my neighbor in the evening on the evening of April 26th, 2021. We were both using binoculars to look at the Tycho cratering on the moon that night. I heard him say "do you see that" just as a very large craft moved from right to left below the moon at a very great distance. What struck me was the sheer size of this craft. This is going to sound a bit silly perhaps but I can only describe it as being similar in shape and size as the star destroyer in the movie Star Wars. The ship moved into what appeared to be a clear night sky however as it passed the light of the moon it seemed to dissolve into nothing as if it was slowly melting into the night sky again. This process took only a minute or so before the entire craft was no longer visible. I couldn't beleive how much texture was visible at that distance giving me the impression it was massive. It was dark gray and black in color that had no ! visible lights or light source of it's own. I was filled with an irrational sense to run in a fight or flight impulse. We continued to watch the surrounding sky for another 30-45 minutes before calliing it a night and returning indoors.
