This road sign is by itself blue and what looks like "blue reflection" on it is not in fact. This sign is lightened by spot lights:
Anyway, since there's no news yet from the OP, I decided in the meantime to run the photo in my favorite software to see if I could get something
Since it appears to be a foggy/rainy day with low clouds cover, the light is very diffuse: light rays are strongly scattered by the small suspended
water droplets in these weather conditions.
Therefore there's a minimum distance at which the higher possible gray value for the pixels in a selected light cannot be 255 (the maximal possible
value i-e the brightest pixel that saturated the camera sensor)
A simple way to visualize this is to apply to the whole gray picture a luminosity curve and to do a step by step increase pixel value.
The brightest pixels for the closest objects in the picture (the two cars ahead and the closest streetlight to the extreme middle left) have a value
comprised between 253 and 255 and the only
other object that have these values as well is the alleged "ufo":
The streetlights in the background have lower values.
What does that mean?
That mean that this "ufo" can only be very
close to the photographer, and at max in the same vertical plane as those of the cars ahead and the
streetlight at the left.

I would say rather less than 10 yards away... and maybe less than 1 yard away...
