Saw what appeared to be a star near the moon, however it was moving slowly to the west...

Shape: Light - Duration: 8 minutes

While watching a Delta IV launch from Cape Canaveral last week, during excellent weather, I saw what I thought was a star just to the west of the moon. I thought it was a star because it looked like the often observed conjunction between Jupiter or Venus and the moon. But then, I noticed the object was moving slowly westward.

My wife, daughter (15) and son (8) were there and I commented to them about the object, but they did not seem very interested.

As I watched, I thought how much it looked like a star and wished I had seen it pass from the east side (my wife had commented that she earlier had seen it on the east side of the moon) to the west side of the moon, because it would have had to pass in front of or behind it.

I observed the object and took several (approximately 18) photos. I was fascinated by the object, because I could not imagine what it was. After about 10 minutes, when I wasn't watching it as closely, I noticed it was gone.

Looking at the photos afterward under magnification, there appears to be a much smaller light moving around the larger object.
