The "sky" comment was valid. When you only say "I saw something in the sky, what is it?" and post a picture of a blurry blob, there isn't much anyone can do to help you. The sky is big, and as the Earth rotates on its axis, celestial objects change position. What you see in the sky also depends on your location on Earth. So knowing where you are, what time you took the picture, and in what direction you were looking, are extremely helpful in identifying the object.
That said, I ran Stellarium set for Pennsylvania and the time specified by OP, and I have nothing in NW. Jupiter was in the west, so if we approximate the time and direction of view even more, that could have been Jupiter.
I advise the OP and everybody else who haven't done so, to download and use Stellarium. www.stellarium.org...

There's not much I can do if I only have a picture of a blurry blob. The object was faraway and hard to catch. It took quite a bit for my camera to focus on the object. I have stellarium, but didn't have access to it.
We're trying to help you in your solicitation of an answer.
Where was this photo taken, when, and what direction were you facing at the time?
