UFO appearing behind BBC correspondent on Breakfast News during US Election coverage (November 2000)

This has actually been inadvertedly filmed by the BBC, and shown on their Breakfast News program during coverage of the US elections. On the afforementioned date, the BBC switched their coverage to a Washington studio for a live interview with their Election Correspondent. The time was approximately 08:47 (GMT). The correspondent was seated in front of a window, through which a backdrop of night-time Washington was clearly visible. As the interviewee was speaking, a UFO slowly 'drifted' in from the top left corner of the window and hung motionlessly for the rest of the interview. I would describe the object as disc-shaped (as viewed as a near side-on angle) and was a soft blue colour. I have e-mailed the BBC to see if they could identify the 'object' as a reflection, etc. but, as yet, they have not replied. There were two observers to this incident - myself and a housemate. I am currently a first year psychology PhD student, aged 27 and my housemate is a research fellow, having recently completed his PhD in the same subject. We are both based at ((Name deleted)) University, although my reporting of this incident has no association whatsoever to the Department or the University.
