Sighting Details

I was walking down west end avenue after 5:00 pm on the first evening of the new year photographing the young moon and venus. the skies were clear, at first a deep parish blue and then black, and i was walking south on west end avenue snapping very amateurish pictures with my cellphone. when i uploaded the photographs to my computer, i observed a white shape above the moon and slightly to the west, which, when i magnified it, resembled a classic cylinder ufo. the shape even seems to have a bubble top. there are other photographic anomalies in the frame as well. the shape does not appear in any of the other photographs i took (before or after this frame), nor do the other anomalies. i did not notice any objects in the sky when i took the photograph. i did have momentary trouble with the camera, and had to press the button several times before i got the picture.
