[NOTE: The first three images are 3 versions of the same photograph, showing the "orb" photographed by the witness. The 4th image shows where the moon was. According to the witness, "the orb was right of the tree, the moon was way left and a crescent." The orb was not seen at the time the photograph was taken (see report below.)]
Glowing sphere low in the sky, moon was a crescent on this night.

Full Description & Details:
I had taken my digital camera outside to take pictures of a really great looking sunset,i took 4 photos all together,i also made a point of getting the moon in 2 of the photos because it was a crescent shape and looked good against the sunset backdrop,the photos were taken all at the same time , one after another,when i put them on my computer i noticed a strange looking light low in the sky,i checked my other photos to make sure it wasnt the moon,which it was not , for the moon was in a totally different location and was not full,it was a small crescent,i have included a photo of this too.Im not sure what this ball is ,any comments would be helpful,when i went back outside about 3 minutes later there was nothing there ,the moon was still in the same place and still a crescent,western australia did not have a full moon on the 13th of march 2005,so im stumped,has anyone seen anything similar? thanks.
im 31 yrs old , live in a small town in the southwest of australia, i work in a blood lab,i lived in the u.k for 13 yrs then came to australia,my intrests are music , acoustic guitar,computers and travelling.
i strongly believe that there is other life out there,im not sure what it was(in the photo) i can say 100% it was not the moon and my camera works just fine , so i was hoping you could help and explain what it is.
