The photo below shows a mysterious purple orb I photographed above the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York.
There was no fog, mist, rain or precipitation while I was photographing
on this night. The air quality listed on airnow.gov was "good," with a
rating of 40. The pollen count listed on pollen.com was "low," with a
rating of 0.1.
