Just playing around with my camera settings when I saw the moon pop up so I took this (yes it was pitch black when I took this but I used a 30 sec exposure)...

Anyway the actual MOON is the highly over exposed circle just beside the slanting roof on the left. The other defined white circle with the red ring in around it in the middle-right was NOT in the sky but yet it appeared in the picture. Any idea what it is? i'm thinking a reflection of something?

yes, it would be a reflection of the moon that bounced around inside the barrel of the lens and back onto the glass... and was caught by the sensor. good guess!

Did you have a filter (UV) on the front of your lens?

Shampoo sounds like an unfortunate name for a hair product.

I would be 99.9% certain you you have a UV filter on your lens. This ghosting is why you shouldn't use one for night photography.

What night was this picture taken, and are you sure there wasn't another bright object in that proximity?
The Moon just passed Jupiter a few nights ago which would place it pretty close to where that spot is.

I think it's clearly a UFO.
