Hello everyone, I was hoping the community here can help identify this object next to the moon. This was filmed on June 30th at about 11:30 pm. It is not Jupiter or Spica, and I think Sirius was on the other horizon at the time. It was on the opposite side of the moon (where it is dark) when I first saw it. By the time I set my telescope up it was gone. Then about 30 minutes later it showed up again in this spot. I thought maybe it was a background star that the moon was moving in front of, but according to Skyview there were no bright stars in that area at the time of this video. The object also appeared to be moving with the moon, at times staying the same distance from it. I apologize for the shaky camera.

I am new to this so hopefully one of these will work...

Original Video



Original Video edited to remove grain and zoom:




This video was about 5 minutes before the original and the object appears closer to the moon:



This video was about 15 minutes before the original and the object is not there:



Here is a slideshow of screenshots with magnification:




Screenshots:








I thought it was strange how it appeared to stay the same distance from the lunar surface at times, which you can see in the last 15 seconds of the original video.

I appreciate any info, thank you.

Could be this?





Friday, June 30

And this evening, the Moon's dark limb will occult (cover) the bright, tight double star Gamma Virginis (Porrima) for much of the U.S. and Canada. The event happens in daylight for the West, twilight for the central longitudes of the continent, and later in darkness for the East.

Lol. Seriously though, that's exactly what it looks like. Awesome capture, probably one of the best I've ever seen.
