Photos of a UFO above Manhattan.

We were taking photos for my roommates father on our roof for his birthday. While taking the photos I noticed a strange craft hovering and slowly moving over Manhattan. I have been involved in aircraft all my life and upon noticing this craft I was immediately shocked. It was a cloud shape form very obscure yet with a flat and roating movement to it. It was not a cloud it was in front of the clouds at sun set. It began to change shape and move all the while changing in color due to the sun. We took 9 photographs of the object and it changed shape moved across the city. Turned at amazing angles. Then conformed into a ball and shot straight up into the sky. Going from a low altitutde to the outreach of space in a matter of seconds. 6minutes after the sighting while it was still in the sky a strange large black aircraft began to move in the general direction of the craft. The photos are very strange and show an amazing object. Thanks for listening!
