Well just using rough estimates, compared to speeds observed of UFOs on earth, the 'UFO' in this video would have to be not only 'huge' but also
moving an a quite insane speed to be able to been seen from earth and cover that visible distance.
The moon is pretty big and very far away, if we look at some numbers for a moment:
3,475 kilometers diameter (27% the size of earth)
384,400 kilometers from earth (30 times the earths diameter, away)
The 'UFO' moves about a quarter to half way across the moon (lets assume its very close to the moon but not on it, so lets use a quarter) in about 5
seconds which would make its rough speed guesstimate (868km / 5 = 173km/s). Compared to observed speeds of UFO on earth, that puts it in the region
of (lets say 3km/h (2000mph, mach 3) 173km/s * 60 = 10,380km/h) which is 3,460 times faster than mach 3.....
Now lets do a rough guesstimate of size, being viable on the moon at this distance of 384,400km and the moons diameter being 3,475km would place the
'UFO' somewhere in the region of, lets say its 0.5% of the size of the moon (total random guess here size i dont know how to work this bit out),
3475km / 100 * 0.5 = 17km. even if we said it was 0.1% the size of the moon (1000x smaller) it would work out to be 3.4km in size. Thats insanely
huge by the way, and moving at speeds like that highly implausible.
Even if im totally off in my guesstimates, it still puts this at larger than anything ever spotted anywhere ever. So there we go some sort of
rationalization to say that this is likely another fake - plus it just looks fake
