Wow, a small blurry black dot.
Let me know when you have a close-up of the "object" so we can actually tell what the hell it is. Otherwise, there's nothing really to see here...

Obviously a fake video made using one of the simplest cg techniques can achieve this. Make a simple flat round nurb geometry in MAYA. Project an image of the moon on a geometry grid using procedural mapping. Keyframe the nurb geometry by hand. TADAAA!!
Forget maya. Even Flash or After Effects can do this.
Entry level cg hoax for the ATS gullibles! The Italian astronomers get the credit.
Folks today would believe anything.

"NASA's objective is for Google Moon to become a more accurate and useful lunar mapping platform that will be a foundation for future web-based moon applications, much like the many applications that have been built on top of Google Maps," said Chris C. Kemp, director of strategic business development at NASA's Ames Research Center, Moffett Field, Calif. "This will make it easier for scientists everywhere to make lunar data more available and accessible."
