I took 4 pics of the Empire state building while waiting for a green light - next day I noticed 6 orbs in 2 pics in different positions

It was raining and there was a lot of mist or fog and the Empire State Building was lit up and had a nice pinkish glow to it so I took 4 pictures of it while waiting for a light at 5:34 on Feb 4th (was on the way to a social gathering). The first picture was in portrait mode and brought the image too close, so I went to photo mode and focused on the Empire State Building and took 3 more shots. The second and third shot were a 1X magnification and the 4th was a closer magnification. The next day I checked the photos on my iPad and I saw there were 6 white orbs around or beyond the top of the Empire State building. The 2nd and 3rd pics were a few seconds apart and it was apparent the orbs had changed positions, possibly moving NE and their relative positions had changed and the brightness changed slightly possibly as it was heavily misty. I did not see them in the 4th picture or the 1st picture. So this all passed over in probably less than 30 seconds. The glare from the Building light was so bright I didnít noticed the orbs at the time and I can understand why this might have not been noticed by anyone on the ground.
