New here. Hope I found the right place.
I seen something strange many years ago in Dublin in Ireland (year 2006 or plus a few years). I searched everywhere for anyone who had seen the same thing I did, but did not find anything at the time. I did not immediately start an online thread etc as I was afraid of being judged and was not confident in general. Forums weren't popular back then either and sure Facebook was only starting up. Today, I have still not found anything, but far more confident and now it's time to get this out there.
I love and grew up with all things science, especially astronomy. I have a strong sense of logic and keep an open mind.
One day, I was standing on an outdoor train platform (called Ashtown) on the way to university. I arrived early. There was nobody else around and the sun was shining with no clouds in sight. The weather was fantastic. The moon was clearly visible towards the east in the bright blue sky, which was not surprising as I had seen the moon during the day before. I had above-average vision (a little better than perfect 20/20 vision).
I thought, it seemed a little late for the moon to still be up there. Suddenly, during one of the moments while I was looking at it, the moon started being covered up with a razor sharp and super straight edge. It's exactly like slowly moving a large A4 piece of paper across a white circle, where the A4 piece of paper is the same colour as the sky. The movement was slow and spanned over many seconds. I think the direction of the movement was from the bottom right to the top left, going diagonal. It was so bizzare and unexplainable that I looked around, looked back, to see if I was just imagining it and it was indeed happening. No obstacles in the sky. No obstacles in my eyes. No psychological or mental issues. I think the moon eventually became totally eclipsed. I'm not confident enough to remember and thus share exactly how the moon went back to normal (it's been years and I want to recall the moment only with 100% accuracy). But I do remember it going back to normal fairly quickly. When people started arriving on the platform, I stared at the moon hoping that moment would happen again for them to see it but it didn't.
What baffles me most is that there is little to no room for ordinary scientific or logical explanation, as far as my own humble knowledge goes.
I'd love to hear what is on your mind right now, your thoughts or if you've seen something similar before.
As for those who feel obliged to give assertive answers - no arrogant assumptions, religious, or UFO conspiracies please unless they can be backed up by solid peer-reviewed evidence.
Thank you for your valuable time, my new friends.
