Sky watch: sunset and huge moon and a mystery

George Rice wrote last night, March 23, 2016:
"As I was returning from Charity Baptist Church I became quite obsessed with that monster moon. Absolutely beautiful. Being after dark, I kept taking picture after picture of that moon. I didnít have the filter and tripod that I needed but I did capture this scene of the moon as seen through the tree top (poor picture of the moon) but old glory showed up quiet well. Now I need readers to identify the moving light at the top of the picture. I did not see this until I brought the picture up on my computer. Could it be a comet? It also showed up on other pictures that I took."
Ok, CM readers and scientists, what is that moving object in the photo? - LW

He says he didn't feel it was a great photo of the moon but old glory showed up quiet well. Now he needs readers to identify the moving light at the top of the picture which he saw when he blew up the picture up on his computer.
