Man Sees "Squarish Shaped" Object Move by Moon

Date of Sighting: June 17, 2008
Time of Sighting: 10:25 PM EDT
Date Sighting Reported: June 17, 2008
Duration of Sighting: About 7 Minutes
Location of Sighting: Levittown, New York (W-Central Long Island)
Latitude: 40.73 Degrees North
Longitude: 73.5 Degrees West
Number of Witnesses: One
Weather: Scattered Clouds Were Observed at 10,000 Feet. Visibility Was 10 Miles. Winds Were From the West-Northwest at 7 MPH.

Description: It was a little while ago about 10:25 PM on Long Island N. Y. The moon was so bright I had to go out and see it with my telescope. I just happened to see really close up and a very clear shot of something that I want to say looked like it could be a satellite, but it seemed to be cruising around the moon like something else? I saw it 3 times within a 7 minute interval. I would say it was going around the whole moon from front to back. It went by the bottom, middle, then the top of the moon. Could a satellite circle the moon that fast? I wouldn't know, but this was really weird to me and yes I am always looking out there for the odd events. The object I saw looked literally just like a satellite and had a square front with 4 visible legs. I saw it very clear in a 9mm lens. It was amazing to see anything just cruise across the moon. I must say I felt like I was there looking down at it. It was really cool, but what was it. Did anyone else see it? Tonight is the perfect night so I am so sure someone had to be watching this. Well that's all. Thanks for listening.

Comments: Given the witness description I don't believe that he saw a satellite. With limited data it is difficult to say what the witness sighted. More data could reveal a conventional explanation.
