Must have been moving very slowly, judging by the moons movement in the time-lapse.
Let's get quantitative.
The moon moves about 1/3 its diameter in the course of the clip.
It's half a degree wide, so it moves 1/6 of a degree in that time.
The Earth rotates 360 deg (approx) in 24 hours,
15 degrees in one hour (60 minutes).
1 degree in four minutes.
1/6 of a degree in 4/6 minutes, or 40 seconds.
Something that takes the better part of 40 seconds to traverse the sky (if it's even in the sky
and not a reflection) doesn't look at all anomalous.
What gets me is that nobody there on the set knew what it was. That is just embarrassing.
