Large object observed through telescope near LUNAR moon.
music [ in part 2 ] why ?????????????????
I'm not sure of the exact cause of the artifact in the video this thread is about, but I might be able to determine it if I could examine the camera. I'm not thinking lens flare, but I found a fascinating lens flare "UFO" video of the conjunction made the day before. The photographer doesn't mention the "UFO", but it has a typical lens flare characteristic which is that it's equidistant to the image center as the light source, except in this case not exactly. What makes it interesting is that apparently the camera's image stabilization works on the moon, but the "UFO" lens flare reflection of the moon seems to be dancing around with the camera shake, and the image stabilization doesn't seem to be working on that lens flare reflection of the moon, so it looks like a UFO flying around, it's fascinating what artifacts cameras can produce.

Seeing 'OneBigMonkeyToo' post, I'm leaning towards a type of lensflare/artifact as it looks like an inverted Moon
Likely hid behind the moon on purpose.
Not really, no. Not a station.
This is possible the same station which was shown 3 months ago in the Nasa video (Stereo mission).

You seem to know a lot.
It is a space station.
Controlled by the Us Navy.
Part of the secret space program. Usa and Britain and other commonwealth countries with maybe few more are in charge.
I think you're reading some unreliable sources, or watching biased documentaries that misrepresent the truth, so your view is not accurate and quite distorted.

Im just like you other folks here, maybe i have read too much and it sounds believable.
Buzz Aldrin says in one video something like this: "i saw glowing craft flying near moon, so technically, because I couldn't identify what it is, it was an Ufo".
Sounds like he knew it was the militarys secret crafts flying there, but because he isn't privy to the model number, its still just a "ufo". Also since hes not telling specific secrets, and it was some Ufo documentary, he decided to say it.
(Then theres the Gary Mckinnon case, claimed he hacked Nasa, saw picture of a secret space ship named : " USSS Hillenkoetter"
"Behind the scenes, high-ranking Air Force officers are soberly concerned about UFOs. But through official secrecy and ridicule, many citizens are led to believe the unknown flying objects are nonsense."
Well I think you and SpaceBoyOnEarth are both embarassing yourselves a bit with this Hillenkoetter off-topic tangent related to one of the most studied and explained "UFO" cases on record, the STS-48 "UFOs". There are plenty of conspiracy theorists who apparently can't tell a thruster firing when they see one, but all the data is readily available for anybody who wants the truth:

You have a lot going on here, much of which is beyond the reading comprehension of your detractors.
Roscoe H. Hillenkoetter was the first director of the Central Intelligence Agency (also probably the primary source for NICAP dis/info before Stanton Friedman)
Hillenkoetter's claim to UFO fame was the statement: "Behind the scenes, high-ranking Air Force officers are soberly concerned about UFOs. But through official secrecy and ridicule, many citizens are led to believe the unknown flying objects are nonsense."
So intelligence folks have received training in "The Art of Deception" including UFO deception, and I see lots of such deception coming from TTSA which is staffed by ex-intelligence folks which is probably not a coincidence, but I'm not aware of the intelligence community trying to muddy the waters on the STS-48 case; the conspiracy theorists seem to be doing that just fine on their own by failing to do the research and address all the data already presented by NASA and researchers like Jim Oberg.
The presentation is called The Art Of Deception and includes three slides showing what appear to be UFOs
Leading UFO expert Nigel Watson has said that skeptics have already dismissed the images as fake
He believes spies are given the images along with guidelines on how to spread misinformation via the internet
Such deception can be used to help coverup more mundane terrestrial activities like testing secret aircraft or military exercises, he said...
‘The main evidence for the cover-up of UFO reports and manipulation of UFO beliefs, as revealed by the documents released by Edward Snowden, is contained in a Powerpoint presentation called, The Art Of Deception: Training For A New Generation Of Online Covert Operations.
