I have always had many questions about space, moon etc. Went through a religious stage many years ago but asked too many questions which couldn't be
answered. Was somewhat sceptical about ufos (until getting on the net in '95). I guess my true awakening came in Oct, 2004. Here's the story.
My first astronomy lessons came from a small $30 telescope. Not much to see other than some moon craters, venus etc. In Oct 2004 I purchased a meade
5" with the goto controls. Not really knowing how to use it I decided to just go out to the yard and look at the (full)moon maybe mars and anything
else I could figure out. After focusing on the moon and watching it for 5 minutes I noticed 2 small black dots that appeared to be orbiting the moon.
If you draw a 12" circle the dots would appear to be about the size of a pencil dot (quite small but very visible).
The black dots entered from the southeast and crossed the face of the moon in about 6 minutes, disappearing over the northwest horizon making a
perfectly straight line. They re-appeared in about 6 minutes at the same point on the southeast horizon. I watched this for about 40 minutes. At first
I assumed it was some type of satellite orbiting and that the second dot was a shadow. After 3 passes of 2 dots the fourth pass had only one dot as if
one of the objects had landed (scratching my head now).
I continued to watch and the second dot reappeared after two one dot passes. I watched this for about an hour. Packed up the scope and searched the
NASA website for an explanation. Checked some other sites but nothing about any moon satellites could be found. Thought about it for a few days and
decided to email some astronomers for an explanation. Two replied saying there was nothing they knew of orbiting the moon. One asked me if I was close
to a tree and that maybe I was seeing some bees. Obviously this was not some bees. The perfectly straight line, two dots then one then two. etc etc. I
knew that whatever it was I saw was definitely making circles around the moon. I have since focused on the moon but saw nothing. UFO or Military
something is up there.
