Time of Sighting: 9:50 AM EDT
Description: Dear sir/Madame: For your appreciation this is a tourist photo taken with a mobile phone. I do not have any explanation to justify the strange lights on the top of the picture.
Response of Witness to Investigator Questions: I took the photo outdoors, on the top of the Empire State Building, outside on the terrace. The direction was around 200º Southwest. The new WTC is a good reference point. If you need more information do not hesitate to contact me.
Note: The lights appear to be a reflection. At this time it is not known if the photo was taken indoors or outdoors. This question has been submitted to the witness. Any updates will be posted.
Update – Sep 23, 2016: Given the response of the witness above these objects are likely real and not reflections. The photo was taken outside on the top of Empire State Building facing towards the SW. The new World Trade Center (WTC) is visible.Note to Commenters: If you are reporting a sighting, be sure to include the location (city, state, country), date and time of your sighting.
