long thin object crossing moon

We were watching the moon rising off Lake Michigan through 100x binoculars when we noticed a very thin black line crossing straight horizontally in a northerly direction about 1/3 up from the bottom of the moon. It moved at a rate that took about 7 seconds to cross the moon. The line was about 1/4 moon diameter long. It was very thin solid and black with proportions like a thin felt marker drew a line 1/2″ long.

It don’t think it was a contrail because there was nothing that looked like an aircraft leading it. Also, it didn’t seem to fade out or linger at the end but seemed more like a solid object that was moving right across.

The moon was only about 20% up from the horizon and was still orange at 10:30pm CST. It was impossible to estimate the actual size but it had the eerie appearance of being closer to the moon than to the earth.

I’ve watched the moon hundreds of times through binoculars and I’ve seen silhouettes of aircraft crossing but never anything like this.

Any ideas what it could have been?

About anomaly

SMiles Lewis has had a lifelong interest in all things anomalous. An early age proclivity at recalling his nightly dreams as well as several personal experiences with ESP, precognition and dream switching bolstered his interest in the paranormal. Shortly after high-school he joined the local MUFON chapter in Austin, Texas. He would later become a MUFON State Section Director for that group as well as leader of the local UFO Experiencer Support and Study Group. A lover of books, SMiles collected over 1000 titles before founding the non-profit Anomaly Archives that serves as the lending library of the Scientific Anomaly Institute (501c3). For over twenty years he has worked with digital audio, video and other bleeding edge internet technologies. He has published his own print journal (E.L.F. Infested Spaces), edited a local paranormal newspaper (Austin Para Times), maintained a large network of websites (ELFIS.net), organized a national UFO conference (NUFOC-38), spoken to anthropologists about UFOs and parapsychology (Encounters with the Fantastic), hosted (and been a guest on) both terrestrial and webradio talk shows and has been podcasting since before the phrase existed. All these efforts and more have led radio talk show host Robert Larson to describe Miles as a “Gonzo Alt-Media Proprietor and Informationalist.” He is also the LOWFI-Texas State Bureau Chief of The League of Western Fortean Intermediatists. SMiles’ current projects include co-hosting PsiOp-Radio with Mack White as part of the many unique shows airing daily on his ANOMALY RADIO Network. He is active with several local non-profits which includes his service on the board of directors for the Institute for Neuroscience And Consciousness Studies (INACS) and the Scientific Anomaly Institute‘s lending library, the Anomaly Archives. His writings can be found within the Archives of his print journal ELFIS and ANOMALY Magazine. In his day job with the Texas State Library and Archives Commission‘s Talking Book Program he manages a Volunteer Recording Studio and audio duplication department and has been a consultant on two digital audio development documents for the Library of Congress‘ National Library Service for the Blind and Physically Handicapped.
