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?
