Sighting Reports 2008

Man Sees Object Close to Moon

Date of Sighting: June 19, 2008
Time of Sighting: 9 PM and 3:30 AM CDT
Date Sighting Reported: July 7, 2008
Duration of Sighting: 6 Hours and 30 Minutes
Location of Sighting: On Oil Rig in Gulf of Mexico About 165 MI SE of New Orleans, Louisiana
Latitude: 28.37 Degrees North
Longitude: 89.04 Degrees West
Number of Witnesses: One
Weather: Based on the Witness's Report Skies Were Most Likely Clear.

Description: I was taking weather reports and noticed a star like object next to the full moon. The approximate time was 21:00 hours. The star was located at 8:30 relative to the moon. I have never noticed a star that bright or that close to the moon. All during the night at different times I kept a periodic check on this star with the moon's position. This star stayed in the same position, but continued to orbit the moon. At last sighting at approximately at 03:30 hours the next morning this star was on the opposite side of the moon at position approximately 4:00. This was not a star. Stars do not orbit the moon and do not stay in the same relative position with the moon. Whatever it was, it was very large to be able to see it with the naked eye.

Comments: The witness has spotted the planet Jupiter which was at nearly the same direction as the moon throughout the time period.
