UFO spotted next to One World Trade Center tower

My partner and I were on holiday in New York city in October 2016. On the 19th of October at around 4.08 pm, we were at the 9/11 memorial taking photos of the new tower. A couple of weeks earlier, whilst watching the pictures that I took on my phone during my holiday, I noticed an odd shaped blue object sitting next to the One World Trade Center tower. I first thought that it was just an optical effect due to the reflection of the sunlight on my camera lens. Then I remembered that my girlfriend was also taking photos with her phone of the same tower at the same time. I took her phone and looked closely at her pictures and unsurprisingly, the same object is on 2 other photos taken with her phone. However, it seems having a slightly different shape on the pictures that she took compared to mine. I'm not sure how long this object was sitting there for as we did not see it on the spot but it is likely to have appeared/disappeared very quickly. We have several pi! ctures of the same tower but the object only appears on 3 of them. So we estimate that it was present for a very short time (no more than a few seconds).
