It is possible, but it could have been a well cut diamond too.  

Here are a couple of videos that show moissanite fire.

Sounds like it! My moissanite jewelry has that awesome discoball sparkle, I’m addicted to it!

Or an incredibly well cut diamond. Could be either one.

Some people say they can tell, but unless you have experience with seeing the differences for sure, it’s impossible to say. I say go to a jewelry store that stocks moissanite or order a loose stone online to make sure you like moissanite. Also, moissanites are not all identical, so not every stone will have exactly the same fire and sparkle.

I don’t really know enough about moisanite, but I have an ideal cut/symmetry/polish hearts and arrows diamond and let me tell you in certain stores and resturants my diamond looks insane! And it has a ton of fire and sparkle that can be quite colorful depending on the lighting.  Olive Garden and Walmart seem to have the most fun lighting for me to far.

Although it’s hard to describe the difference in words, I would suggest thinking about the nature of the flashes. Was it more like a lot of pinpoints or larger, broader flashes? Were there a lot of bright white flashes?

Rainbow pinpoints (often many at once) suggest moissanite, larger broader flashes including both colors and pure white flashes suggests well-cut diamond.

My moissanite definitely throws more colourful sparkles under certain lighting than diamonds do (diamond sparkles are generally more white).
