pearl shaped ufo leaving smoke trail in photograph in downtown philly

A pearl shaped ufo leaving a smoke trail was discovered on a photograph i took in downtown Philadelphia. I took random photographs that day and one was a photograph of a street sign ?mole Street" against the clear blue sky.

At that time i didn't notice anything in the sky and really wasn't focused on that. Only later did i see a white streak and zoomed in to see what it was. I was very surprised that it showed this round white object with a a smoke trail behind it.

I computerized the image to see if it would resolve into an airplane and a contrail. No matter what i did the round shape persisted. i used some of the tools available to bring it in closer and in a sharper contrast. It is not an airplane,or birds, or a balloon, and is too round to be a meteor. It is not flaw in the camera or lense. I've never seen a ufo but apparently i took a picture of one completely by accident.
