I was standing in my driveway observing the moon. I noticed a bright object come off the southern pole. It then moved to the right of the moon. I ran into my house and grabbed my camera and tripod. Took 1 min. Set up camera and tripod ad started taking pics. The object then did an orbit around the right side of the moon and then moved north until gone.
I think it was a star but the only thing out that was bright enough to see with the naked eye was venus and jupiter. Denebola, vindemiatrix, porrima were not visible. This object was brighter then jupiter and venus. I don’t know what it was. it was probably a star but it sure looked like something took off from the moon, orbited and then took off. i have 40 photos in a sequence. It only took about 3 to 5 minutes for it to orbit so it seemed really fast. i tried all different shutter speeds to try and get a good pic.
