Report Details:
At about 8:38 am on a very clear day I used my binoculars to look at the half moon from my 9th floor balcony. About a moon's diameter to the lower right (southwest) of the moon I noticed a bright white dot. At first, I thought it might be Jupiter, but as I watched it very slowly moved under the moon to the east. I believe the dot was stationary and it was the moon moving past it to the west as the Earth rotated. Within a few minutes of the first sighting the dot was under the moon, and a few minutes later it was about a moon's diameter to the southeast of the moon.

At this point I made a mistake: I went inside, grabbed my starchart, and set it for 8:45 am, May 1 to see if there were any bright stars in that area. This only took a minute, but when I looked back up, the dot was gone! About 30-45 seconds later a commercial plane, leaving a contrail, flew (north to south) across the location the dot had occupied. A minute later another plane flew by in the same position and direction.

I searched the sky, but could not find this very bright dot anywhere.
