Cool, if real then they are fast, huge enough to both seen from the earth and for there shadows to be seen from the earth.
If anything it look's too real, you would be talking objects on the order of miles across making very fast orbit of the lunar surface OR coming
around the moon to hide in the earth side shadow but if so why pass the illuminated rim of the moon when they could have come around the other side of
If they are real they are not ours.
Several different reason's to build ship's on that scale - we can't as far as we know but someone else somewhere may be able to.
Cargo ship's or mining ship's.
Space colonies or colonization ship's.
Why would they pass so close to the moon and let earth see them, show of force or they simply do not care and regard us as little less than insects,
to threaten us to stay away from the moon as if they own it and are waiting for us to die out before they then legally (assuming there are some form
of laws in space or among there own race that would prevent them if we were alive) colonize the earth.
They could be bad but we would already be dead, they could be good and defending us perhaps even from ourselves, they could be indifferent or simply
isolationist and not wanting anything to do with us.
And they could be from here from someone whom lived here long before us.
Or maybe we are nothing special to them, they may know more about us than we do ourselves or we are so primitive they can't be arsed - until and
unless the day come's when we pose a threat, ship's that size and all we can put up is a space shuttle or a pressurized tin can and something that big
even a nuke would have difficulty with.
Or they could simply be passing through, who knows if there are other races that far ahead of us then we could even be in disputed territory between
there realm's, a no man's land and they could even be the space equivalent of peace keepers or police, just maybe all those UFO's that have supposedly
been shot down were not shot down by us?.
OR it could be a clever hoax.
Either way first time I have seen this one and great fun.
Someone good at math could probably figure out there likely size, angle of the sun can be worked out by the phase of the moon visible, angle of the
craft at any given moment by how far the shadow is ahead of them, altitude by how long it takes for them to become occluded by the moon's shadow
assuming they maintained altitude and were in a circular orbit which they may not have been but if they were, my guess each was several miles across
