|black triangles were seen flying across the surface of the full moon
I was looking at the full moon through my telescope (Mead-Model 70AZ-AR)when I saw a small black triangle fly from left to right horizontally across the face of the moon. It lasted about two seconds and once the triangle passed the lighted moon surface, I couldn't see it anymore. It looked, from what I could see, to be just a dark black surface- no lights on the object but with clear lines defining its triangle shape against the lighted surface of the moon. About 5 minutes later another black triangle moved over the moon's surface from bottom to top. This second black triangle moved much quicker, about a second or less, with the same black surface and clear lines. Approximately 3 minutes later, another black object moved diagonally across the upper left hand side of moon's surface from left to right, very quickly, faster than the first two objects. The third object was moving so fast that it looked to be more like a sphere, but with the same deep black color. It was the color that I could clearly see against the moons surface. All three objects had clear lines against the backdrop of the moon and dissapeared once they had passed the moons surface. The first two objects had a clear delineated shape of a triangle against the moon's surface. The third object was more of a definate color, a deep black against the moon, but not having as clear of a shape as the first two, due to its' was moving so fast. The first two objects were the same size, the third looked a little smaller.
I am currently a graduate student in psychology. I couldn't sleep that night-but I was awake and lucid. I had been up around that time for the past three days writing papers. I had gotten used to being up and awake around that time, so I wasn't surprised that I was awake. It takes me a couple of days to get back to sleeping normally after I finish a big project. Since I was up, I decided to take out my telescope and enjoy the full moon. I had been looking at the moon, trying different lenses, trying to find different landmarks for about 10 minutes or so when I saw the first black triangle.
