Spaceship in My Shot?

This is a photo of the September 27/2015 Super Moon taken about 7:25PM...not long before the Lunar Eclipse began. I was using my son's camera, a Nikon Coolpix L820 using the Auto Mode setting and it was mounted on a tripod. I'm not sure what the zoom was but it was close to it's maximum I believe. Streaking across the Moon is what looks like a spaceship...but unfortunately is likely an airplane. (who knows...)
