Location of Sighting: Redding, California
Date of Sighting: April 24, 2018
Time of Sighting: 1:50 AM PDT
Description: I found something in the right upper corner of one of a photo taken of the moon. The size and motion are unknown. The direction was in the western sky. I am not sure of the color. Zooming in I saw something in right upper corner of the photo so I made a copy and playing with the exposure this is what I found.
Note: It is difficult to say what the object is in front of the moon. It could be bird or insect.Note to Commenters: If you are reporting a sighting, be sure to include the location (city, state, country), date and time of your sighting.

I saved this to my PC then did an extreme zoom and looks to me as if if could be an object hovering over the moon. It casts a shadow and looks to be perhaps triangular in shape and colored yellow (unless the color is an artifact of the zoom, I’m not sure). The shadow makes me think this isn’t a bug or bird.
I think it is not a bug or bird. They did not put the photo of when I was playing with the exposure. I could not see a triangular shape, but I only have a 18 time zoom.
