Trust me bro, that is not the moon. I know it looks white in the pic, but that's because my camera on the phone sucks. It's shiny and metallic. This picture was taken last Saturday, around noon, and the moon definitely would not be on the western horizon that time of day, nor would it be at that latitude this time of year.
Like I said, I saw it last year, and never saw it again until this year. I'm not suggesting that it's UFO (obviously it wasn't flying), or a spacecraft, but I do find it bizarre that something that big is there and then a few hours later it's gone. I don't believe there are any roadways that could be use to drive something of that size up there. I'm sure there's a reasonable explanation of what that thing is, and I definitely would like to know.
