Yea it is moving with the Moon Which was the coolest part. I looked last night with my camera and I couldn't spot it. That was at 12:00 am and cloudy. So tonight conditions permitting, I'll try to capture the Moon from the same spot in my back yard at roughly the same time of 3:30 a.m.

That shows the data "today" (which is showing April 25th) Is there a way to show the stars from the 23rd?
The Moon rises about 1/2 hour later each night (this time of the year) relative to the rising of the rest of the stars, so I would think the stars near the Moon on the 23rd would have been slightly different than shown on your link.
As I said before, I'm pretty sure its just a star in the OP's video. There's no reason to say it isn't a star.

...If you wanted to see the stars themselves on that date, I suggest using the total sky chart, then scaling back the time to the exact time the video was taken.

No way to tell until you also give us a rough location and time.
But with the current location, I'll hazard a guess it was Mars
Download Stellarium and input your location, etc and you can find out for yourself.
