Many years ago I watched a full moon rising in early evening. Suddenly, there was a bright white light about the size of bright Venus in the Moon's south east quadrant. After several seconds, my only thought was "OMG, they have nuked the Moon." I watched transfixed for 15-20 seconds as it got slightly brighter but no apparent motion relative to the Moon. Then it disappeared suddenly. After another 10-15 seconds I could just make out the silhouette of a light airplane moving slowly to the east. It must have been flying directly toward me with landing lights on before slightly altering course and turning off the lights.
