11/11/20 Update: I have followed up with the witness, whose name is Melanie (not MelAnie, my apologies), and they have shared that the only theories they've heard from others are "government satellite." However, the fact that the light did a "full circle around the (moon) within 1 minute" and "practically kissed the moon the left side," makes it very unlikely to be that -- or a drone, for that matter. I agree with Melanie's assessment. Satellites are slow and go in a straight line, whereas drones fly lower in the sky and are often noisy and even have blinking lights.
To help us crack this case, Melanie has shared another photo of the mystery green orb, which really shows how close it got to the moon:
An Austin resident and her daughter were star gazing when they noticed a mysterious green light circling the moon! Check out the photos shared by Melanie Baccus to me on Facebook:
My daughter wanted to go out & take pics of the low, Orange Moon the other night. To the far left there's a Star or Planet that never moved. You, or someone can tell me exactly what. The Green Orb wasn't visible to my eye, only in my phone camera lens. It came from bottom right. Circled around Moon Counter-Clockwise, practically kissed it on the left, then kept moving along. So weird! If I hadn't taken these photos myself, I wouldn't believe it!
What could this strange orb of light be? Could it be something simple to explain like a drone, or is it much too high in the sky? Let me know what you think in the comments, and if you saw this as well, report your sighting!
