Characteristics: There was an aura or haze around the object
Observed a large grey illuminated dog-bone shaped object to right of moon.

I am a 32 year old female, with a B.S. Degree in Psychology and I am currently working for the State of Oregon on the Y2K Project. My husband was outside at 04:15 taking pictures of the partial lunar eclipse when he excitedly called for me stating that he was seeing a UFO. I rushed out to the open window and looked south toward the moon to where he indicated he saw the object. My husband handed me the binoculars. To the right of the moon I could detect a faint, illuminated light grey object in the shape of a dog bone, about half the diameter of the moon. The two ends were easier to see, but I could see a connecting center. I observed it traveling very slowly and by this time it was about "2:00" by the moon. There were no "indicator" lights on it (such as on a plane, and there was no sound). As it continued heading right, and away from the moon, it was less visible, until it competely disappeared from my sight.
