AN UNIDENTIFIED object was caught flying close to the Moon by a super-powerful camera lens.
The clip – available below – shows a large black shadow moving upwards across the base of the Moon towards the centre.
As the lens zooms in, the tip of the object appears to constantly spiral while the entity continues forward.
It is not clear if the triangular, black mark is the object itself or a trail of fumes coming from something else.
Eventually the object disappears into space as it finishes crossing the Moon and is no longer illuminated by its glow.
