I checked with stellarium for your location. Apparently Jupiter and Neptune are near the moon.

Download and install this software, and set your location and see for yourself.

Stellarium

The conclusion is that it is jupiter.

Been watching the moon the last couple of nights, and I pretty much figured it to be a planet.
Off of what Phage and Peacejet have provided, I'm willing to put money on Jupiter.

well it just seemed (to me) to large, to be Jupitor
from where i was, it was like it was spinning.

If its jupitor, then its a false call...


....this time


I say peeps keep watching tho.
i read on another forum another moving object was above the moon

in the second reply you posted pics in, the first one, that looks alot like what i saw last night. Did the thing you saw change kind of orange/red?

last night, what i saw was quite high and as bright as Iss was tonight, maybe even a tad brighter. and was moving weird, kind of looked like it was being lit from below .

Well, I feel gipped!

As you can see, I'm UTC -4....East Coast North America.

Of course, saw the Moon this AM...0630, in the West, before it 'set' as the Earth rotated. Still, too much ambient light scattered in the atmosphere to see Jupiter....bummer.

And, of course, ATM, planet is facing wrong way, from where I'm at, to see the 'show' right now....

Well, fortunately, the sky, she's always a'changin'!!!

genius, the Earth rotates, when viewed "downward" from above the North Pole, Counter-clockwise.

SO....seeing the Moon from the UK NOW, means they see it before we do.

I don't have actual Moon Rise time data...we're getting some high cirrus clouds here too...so can't see....

I live near the op. The object seems close. Also, I don't normally look, but seen some weard stuff moving just now and last nite. Satelites?
Gong back to look with my binoculars. Exciting!

ISS BRIGHTNESS: -4 (super-bright) The International Space Station is the biggest, brightest object orbiting Earth. The station's solar arrays span 240-feet from tip to tip, almost as wide as a football field. The ISS outshines Venus; only the sun and Moon are brighter.

it's going by New Zealand right now.
you can try other satellites as well, see if you can find anything it could be.

If that is jupiter, he should be seeing the moon to the left of it too, right? Or is the moon behind that 'building'?

It appears to be moving as you said so that RULES OUT THE POSSIBILITY OF A BLOODY SKEPTIC SCREAMING ITS REFLECTION ON THE LENSE!!! though, i would find it difficult to be a reflection considering you see it with your own eyes as well. Brilliant shots mate... Keep your eyes peeled.

alright. it could very well be the space station, but according to the pictures, it appears to be moving far to fast and far to close to the atmosphere and gravitational pull to be either satallite or station.. again I say APPEARS.

I can't believe that no one has ever thought of putting a webcam surveillance for the moon so we can see live images/video.

I've searched on google for live images but didn't seem to find nothing, just this, but it stopped trasnmitting live from 2008.

shauny (and everyone), when you saw this phenomenom, was it fairly low in the sky?

Because, as in certain sightings of Venus, unusually bright planetary sightings, down low, appear to 'move' because of atmospheric lensing effects. Think of what water does to the appearance stones in the shallow portions of a lake or riverbank.

Water is an exaggerated example, of course....but the atmosphere does have an effect.
