Circular object[s] seen in skies NNW in Morden UK

At approximately 17.15 on 14/02/09 [14 February 2009] I was standing just outside my back door in Morden, Surrey [UK] having a cigaraette. I noticed something that caught my eye to the NNW, it looked to be a dark colour, round in shape and just static in the sky. It then moved ever so slowly and then remained static again. I ran in and grabbed my camera and when I came back outside I managed to take two pictures taken on a Canon Power Shot, one taken on normal view and the other on a maximum 16x zoom.

From where this was witnessed I would hazzard a guess at others from different, neighbouring towns having seen this also.

As I was watching a plane flew over at a high altitude [leaving contrails] and the object vanished. I returned back indoors for a while but popped my head out again to see if it had returned and saw another object the same as the one I saw but more to the West. I grabbed my camera from the kitchen but failed to pick it up on my viewfinder and when I looked at the sky the object had again vanished.

I cannot find a rational explanation for this, it certainly wasn't a bird as it was too high, certainly not a plane as no noise and no contrails [the plane that went past it left contrails and made a noise] and it was far too high an altitude for a stray helium balloon to be seen with the naked eye, nor a helicopter.

I have seen and reported to NUFORC on previous occasions other objects I have seen and have always been open to other suggestions, but this time I was left with a very eerie feeling and it actually shook me up compared to any other objects I have seen.

The photos are timed an hour out as I have never changed the time on it when the clocks changed.
