I have taken many moon photos--this picture is not for its high quality, which it doesn't have with tree branches in the way but because on the lower quadrant now there is a very shiny object and I am wondering what that it. I have photos of the moon from other times and I can always see a little bit of one white spot there but now there is something new. I wonder if it was hit by a meteor or if a satellite crashed and its solar panels are shining back in pieces.. just wondering
