Did you notice something streaking across from upper right to lower left, starting at about 22 secs ?

Great video! That speck streaking across had to be a satellite of some type. If you find out which one, please post back! [emoticon]

Maybe the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter?

The Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO) is a NASA robotic spacecraft currently orbiting the Moon in an eccentric polar mapping orbit. Data collected by LRO has been described as essential for planning NASA's future human and robotic missions to the Moon.

Really cool video...

Aside from the 'catch', it was a great shot . especially with what I thought was the first rays of sunlight catching Sinus Iridium up in the top left.
That streak must be a satellite as I think it's too small to be an aircraft. Trying to gauge the scale.

There is not a sat orbiting the moon carrying amateur radio and that.. is all I can tell you about it.

The moon may be high
But I can't see a thing in the sky
For I only have eyes for MOO dear. ...


Home is where I park it.

Yes, I did. It looked like E.T. in the basket of Elliott's bike.

Great video and picture as usual!
