While I was watching the partial eclipse of the moon I saw a strange object in the viewfinder which was flying in front of the moon. I took 8 photos of it. An animated GIF is on my facebook page. I used 4 inch refractor and Canon EOS 7D Mark II.

Could me an aircraft? But they usually leave a bit of distortion behind them from the heat from their engines. Maybe a bird?

The whole transit took 8 to 10 seconds. It can help to calculate the size of the object.

17MART - only if you know how far away the object is... or even a rough guess. In this case there is no idea.
