This was the morning after the supermoon at 4:16am, 12/04/17.
i like to snap pictures of the craters on the curves of the moon with my 83x retractable zoom. this time the really bright light was bouncing off the surface of it. this made the autofocus on my camera go back and forth, and every time it did this it would create what looked like a shadow on the side of the moon. this made the bright object show every time too. finally i figured out a way to zoom in on the object, and then i snapped these four pictures.
the 1st picture shows an orange glow coming from it.
the 2nd picture shows what looks like the object changing its shape.
the 3rd pictures is the most interesting one because it looks like a reentry capsule with its circular heat shield. some think it might be a lunar probe with the extension on it.
the 4th picture looks like it might have some heat coming out of it like the first but not as intense.
why did i only snap 4 pictures? well, because i figured they might be a waste of time, and that i’d probably delete all of them anyway due to the object being nothing at all.
it wasn’t until i put them on my laptop that i said “wow… what the heck is that?” now i wish i had snapped more pictures of it, and maybe a short video too, but i will remember to do that the next time… hopefully there will be a next time.
it now has me hoping to see more of mystery object whenever i zoom in on the moon.
maybe someone can clear up the mystery. 😊
