First time I saw little black specs flying across the moon while looking at it through the telescope, I flipped. I didn't know what I was seeing,
because it's kind of an illusion. They are sharp and in focus, like the moon, so it seems as if they are probably closer to the moon than to you and
your telescope. After seeing them enough times, I finally noticed the flapping wings. So I concluded that they were probably either birds or bats
flying around, as there were plenty of trees around for them to be flying to and from. It is strange though when you first see this.
