Black rectangular observed around the Moon.

Although I have always enjoyed looking up into the night sky I've never seen anything that I would characterize as strange. Anything that looked unusual I was quite sceptical about and always looked for an earthly explanation. One occurrence although I was not able to explain away so easily. It happened while some friends and I were camping at Restoule Provincial Park in July of 2002. The time would have been about 11:00P.M or so. Five of us were at the waters edge shooting the breeze when one of us noticed something near the moon. As we all glanced up we noticed a black rectangular shaped object in close proximity to the moon. It moved from the top left down and seemed to be in an orbit around the moon. As it descended in a circular motion around the moon it slowly reached the bottom portion and than drifted further off to the left and gradually disappeared. Strangely enough, this object actually appeared to be the same distance as the moon which would mean it had to be of incredible proportion. I cannot obviously confirm this though. The whole incident took place over a matter of 5 minutes or so as we were all able to comment on it several times. The size of the object in proportion to the moon would have been about 1/5 its radius. What it was I have no idea but we all have talked about it since. It never unnerved us at the time, it was simply a curiosity.
