Sphere/disc shaped object that appeared in the sky over fresno ca.

Around 4:15 am pacific time I stepped outside my house to smoke a cigarette and noticed a bright light in the sky a considerable distance away. After examining the object for a few moments it hadn't changed position at all and made me start to wonder. Out of curiosity I went inside and grabbed a pair of binoculars to see what is was expecting to have just been over reacting. What I saw through the binoculars appeared to be some sort off-white/tan colored object that was sphereical/disc in shape. After studying it for a few minutes it seemed to rotate around on its horizontal axis exposing its full shape. It was a round object that appeared to be composed of an outer ring surrounding a central sphere/disc type object. Unfortunatly my binoculars wern't powerfull enough to make out the patterns on the central part of the object clearly, but there was obviously some sort of design/patterns in the central portion. It only alluminated that one color but had a orange light/orb that would come from it, move around a bit, then go back. After looking at this go on for approx 10 minutes I went inside and grabbed my digital camera and took pictures of it. Unfortunatly my camera doesnt have a zoom feature but the light/object is clearly seen in the pictures and if magnified the shape is noticable. After 30 minutes of observing this object to the west I noticed a second object to the south, orange in color and further away. It seemed to bare a resemblence in shape as the one to the west but I couldn't see it as well. I studied the object to the west from dark till sun rise (Approx 2 hours.) even after all the stars in the sky had gone the object was still very visable. Finally the sun came up in the west blinding any attept to continue looking at the object. In one of my photos the object isn't where it was and a second grey disc type object is in veiw, much closer. Although I never saw it while I was outside. After some research and photo enhancment it bares some resemblense to a water spot that the camera had poss! ibly con trasted out. I still dont 100% agree with this possibility due to the fact most of the water spots that become visable through enhancment are oval in shape and barely visable. This object is a perfect circle. I wasn't expecting to see what I did but now I'm changed from being open minded about ufo's to beleiving, as I've seen one with my own eye's. Either alien or military testing, whatever it was, was much more then anything I've even dreamed of.

((ADDENDUM FROM WITNESS))

I made an error in my report "Occurred : 6/4/2001 04:00 (Entered as : 06/04/01 0400) Reported : 6/6/2001 01:30 Posted : 6/21/2001 Location : Fresno, CA". the object was in fact in the EAST, NORTH EAST, not west.
