Object appeared in photo after seeing military aircraft

At approximately 10:35 several ( three to four) military fixed winged aircraft were seen flying in formation at approximately 1,000 feet over the western edge of the city of Albuquerque. Both witnesses were in a moving vehicle heading South on I-25 when the military aircraft were observed.

Witnesses then turned east on I-40 and searched to the rear of the vehicle to continue observing military aircraft. (Highly unusual to see C-130 type aircraft in formation although Kirtland AFB is home to many types of C-130's) Military aircraft were not present in the sky, a picture was taken in the area believed to be the most likely spot for aircraft to be.

Image captured is not of any type of civilian or military aircraft and appears to be sphere or circular shape.
