youtu.be...

Came across the amazing high resolution images of the moon above on YouTube.

What caught my attention was the shadow traveling at speed across the surface at the 2:57 mark. At first I thought insect/natural object between the moon and earth, but the "shadow" clearly ripples as it goes across the surface..

Thoughts anyone?

Not a shadow, more likely a bat or large insect flying in front of the lens. You can see it flapping.

Wow, amazing quality!

But couldn't this be an meteorite or something else?

Actually, it's really an UFO for now, since it's probably flying and it is unidentified, lol.

Good catch!

Not sure what it was, but very interesting.

Hopefully someone more intelligent than myself can offer a theory.

Like DAVID I think it's something in our atmosphere , I guess they guy who filmed it thinks the same otherwise it would be a UFO video instead of a cool video of the Moon.

it's not a shadow, it's a bird or more like an insect in silhouette.

Cool. At 1:28 (and at points before as well) there's a rock with a long oblong shadow, lower right-hand. Pretty neat.

This video has been discussed previously and I believe the general consensus at the time was something in our atmosphere and much closer than the Moon itself.

You can see, when the Sun's angle changes that the shadow belongs to a rocky outcrop.

Might be a man made satellite orbiting the moon.


The only known spacecraft currently orbiting the moon are the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO), as well as the two ARTEMIS probes, which are functioning. Beyond that, it is unlikely that any spacecraft is still orbiting, let alone functioning. There are plans for a few more launches in the next few years, but for now, it is only these 3.

Well, Yeah -- even though I have no way to 100% positively identify it...

...BUT it seems to have flapping wings, so most likely its a bird or a bat.

Obviously a rare sighting of Myotis MegaLunaris (Giant Moonbat)

Not at that magnification.

It looks like a bird.

Think about it, a bird at 300 magnification would fill half the screen. The bird, or insect is earth bound, the shadow, in my opinion, was clearly on the moon, running from south to north, basically a lunar polar orbit. I stand by my opinion that it was a lucky capture of a shadow from the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter.

so a bird would fill half the screen so what size is the bird and it's distance your obviously not used to telephoto lenses or telescopes are you


It's not a shadow it's a silhouette there is a BIG difference, and as already stated the photographer did not even metion it.

I see you made no comment about the bird size so you know your comments were idiotic .

This lens, the Leica 2.8/400 is the best in the world. The clarity is incredible (obviously with the best camera, as well.)

He is using the telephoto lens on the bottom. Drool....



This set of lenses, about $100,000.00 !

Think about this...if a bird was high enough and far enough from your eyes, then without a telescope it would look to be only a small percentage of the diameter of the moon.

If so, then why would looking at it through a telescope suddenly make the size of the bird relative to the diameter of the moon be a greater percentage?

That makes no sense. Whatever percentage of the Moon’s diameter it is to the naked eye, it would be that same percentage through a telescope.
