    An unidentified object seems to be floating over moon

    16th March in Dhaka, Bangladesh observed full moon. I was on my rooftop to capture the moon at its glory. I use a Nikon D800. The camera was set to Braketing for 5 frames. At one point I noticed a strange circular "dot" over the moon while gazing through the Preview LCD on the Camera. First I thought it might be something on the lens. I checked and re-checked. No, it was really something between earth and moon. I kept on taking snaps. Since camera was on Exposure Bracketing mode, the exposures are diffrent on the different frames. I tried to fix as much as possiable on Aparture Applicaton. I used iMovie to make this video. However, I have the RAW NEF files as well if someone wants to examine.

    Judging from the frames, It seems something is floating over the moon which is circular in shape. I used a Tamron 70-300 lens at 300mm.

    I leave the judgemnet to the experts but I am completly suprised. My 13 year old daughter was with me as well. However, I did not mention this to her at the time thinking she might get scared. However, later on I showed this to her and my wife. Both are surprised and we are quite confused though. I am certain it is not a camera glitch since I have total 49 snaps and all are just fine except for these 13 snaps where the object apprears.

    On the video the first frame and last frame shows when the object was not there. on second frame was when I first noticed and I stoped to check the lens. This is why there is a time gap between the second and third frame. However, after that all the consequitive frames 1 or 2 seconds apart.
