    I would say (100% sure) it is an internal reflection from the lens elements.

    CC, Image editing OK.

    A Russian rocket?

    It is probably the brightness of the moon creating a reflection in your lens.
    There's a name for it that doesn't come to mind.

    Thanks ameerat I will try that.
    I tried yesterday also my 50mm lens, same thing. Looks like that I have to stamp it out in PP ! I will see, I get my daughter for the 40 D a canon 18 - 55 today, will try that lens to night and see if I have then the same prob again!

    Hakka, I don`t think it is your bird, it always stays on the same position! but thanks for your help !

    Cheers Klaus!

    Are you using a filter on your lenses?

    I would agree on the flare/internal reflection/refraction.

    A lens hood could probably help depending on the angle of your lens during the shot - give it a try.

    Maybe check there's no scratches or marks on the lens too - never know.

    Hi David,
    no, there is no scratch on the lens, but I will try the lens hood option.
    Cheers Klaus!
