UFO over Manhattan

I was sitting on my back porch looking up at a blimp against a beautiful blue cloudless sky when a "star" caught my eye. I've never seen a star or planet in the daytime so after watching for a few minutes I went inside to grab my camera. This took a few minutes to find camera, batteries etc.... but when I came back out it was still there. I took eight pictures with my digital camera. I watched for a few more minutes and came inside to load and enlarge on my computer. Needless to say the enlargements are fuzzy, but there is a shape to it. I went back outside and it was gone. This happened at 3pm edt, it's now 6:30 and I'm still searching the sky for this object, to no avail. I have the pictures if someone can enhance them I'd be happy to send you them.

((NUFORC Note: Photograph indicates a tiny white speck in a clear, cloudless sky. PD))
