Strange Crescent Light Phenomena: Davis, CA

It was an exceptionally clear night and I was sitting on my apartment balcony which faces south across the flat fields typical of davis. As I was playing my guitar, I noticed a large crescent shaped object move into view from the west. The object appeared to be quite distant and large when compared to the apartment building across the street. The crescent moved slowly and steadily to the east for a few minutes. Later, it quickly accelerated east out of sight.

It is difficult to say what it is that I saw other than that it was a dull glowing white light in the shape of a flattened crescent, almost like ground light reflected off a disk seen at an angle. I can not say whether or not what I saw was part of a larger object. There may very well be an explanation involving light phenomena or some other yet to be understood physical process. I chose to report this in hopes that soeone else may have witnessed this event around the same time. After all, it was a very large object low on the horizon extremely clear viewing conditions.
