Sighting Details

Stepping out my front door at approx. 9:55pm cst to smoke a cigarette and investigate what my two dogs were barking at. the moon was bright at approx. 20degrees above the horizon, and the sky was completely clear when i noticed a bright white oblong/rod object hovering directly parallel to the west (facing north) of the moon. i thought it might have been tired eyes or the like so i didn’t think anything of it until i noticed it definitely wasn’t a cloud. stared roughly for two minutes. i then ran inside to get my phone to take a video and when i returned approx. 30-40 seconds later the object had moved up about 5degrees and moved directly above the moon which was at about 20 degrees, i would say it was at 23-25 degrees above horizon. i then watched it move in a southwestern direction for about 30 seconds as it hovered onto the opposing side of the moon (west from vantage point) and to an angle of 23-25 degrees above horizon, almost parallel with the moon again. as it moved farther away from the moon it seemed to speed up while simultaneously the bright white light faded and the object hovered again for approx. 8-10 seconds then disappeared.
