Gray stationary object seen over Tucker area.

I saw a dark circular object in the sky over the Tucker, Georgia area as I was waiting to turn onto I-285 in the morning on my way to work (at exactly 7:11 am, still dark out). I was at the traffic light facing north and noticed the object which appeared to be a great enough distance above the tree line to make me wonder what exactly it was as it did not appear to be a tower, billboard, planet, etc.? The object was stationary and almost looked like the silhouette of a really tiny planet but obviously within a few miles of my position and not in outer space, at least as far as I could tell.

I snapped a couple photo’s with my iphone before the light changed with the thought that I’d relook at the area at another time when it was lighter out and compare my photographs. I retook the photo this morning (10-23-12) when the sun had started coming up (7:23 am). I definitely could not see anything in my second photo that could have been the object in my first photo (btw, I am going to try and attach the photos to this word document).

In true “UFO Photo” fashion, the picture is grainy and the object looks far off. For all I know this was some planet or something else obvious. Either way, I found it interesting and wanted to share.

Did anyone else in the Tucker/Decatur area see this thing? The object I am referring to is the small dark gray circular object in between the two green lights just above where I put an arrow. The other spots are just reflections on my windshield and stars. And no, this was not a spot on my window. I bothered to stick my head outside my window just to double check.

Next day photo. I didn’t see anything that could have been the dark circular object.
