UFO flying by the Flatiron building in NYC.

I was on a double decker tour bus in NYC, taking pictures from my cell phone camera.

When my camera was full, I then emailed myself the pictures so I could clear out my camera space for more pictures.

When I got home from my trip I retrieved all my pictures from email. I tool a picture of the Flatiron building. The picture is normal, except for the huge ufo positioned in front of the sun, next to the building.

I can't tell how far away it was, but in relation to the building it looks closer than an airplane or hellicopter would get. It is positioned diagnolly. It is black in the picture, I guess because it is backlit, and has a very slight movement trailer.

((NUFORC Note: Witness indicates that the date of the incident is approximate. We have viewed the photograph, and we suspect that the object may be some optical anomaly, given that the camera was pointed into the Sun, at the time the photo was taken. PD))
