Is there an UFO in the refection?

Lüntec-Tower reflected in the administration building from the technology park, Lünen, May 2011
No. Or maybe.

A former winding tower from the coal mine from 1922. Now the symbol from the Lüntec technology park. Mining stopped in 1992, the capsule on top was build in 1995 and the technolgy park opend as part of the structural change in the Ruhr district (German Ruhrgebiet).

Popularly called Colani-Ei, after the designer Luigi Colani and the egg-shape. Or it is called UFO. Seen from a distance it does actually look like.

It does kind of look like something the mother ship would send down. Amusing.

Excellent reflection. I wonder if there are little green men in there.
