Multiple glowing objects in the sky photographed within two minutes.

I was at the Diridon transit station in San Jose, California, waiting for my train on my way to work. Diridon station is a busy station, in an urban setting with lots of city noise and bustle. I decided to take some pictures of cheery tree blossoms. The time was 12:13 p.m. I took two photographs of the blossoms and then noticed a security mirror on a pole that was reflecting the trees and the rail tracks and I thought it would make a nice picture so I positioned myself to photograph that as well. I snapped one photo, glanced at it and decided to take another. The second one is slightly closer to the mirror and more centered. The two photos were taken at 12:14 and 12:15, respectively. Both photos show three lamp posts on the right.

I sat down on a bench in the shade to review the photos. In the one taken at 12:15 I noticed a white shape above the lamp post in the foreground. Wondering what it was, I zoomed in and was amazed to find I had captured an object in the sky that was the shape of a flat half-circle and appeared to have a light emission or vapor trail surrounding it. I'm convinced I managed to photograph a UFO. I did not actually see the craft in real time, as I was focusing on photographing the mirror. I did not hear anything that led me to look at it, either. There are airplane flying in the area as this transit station is not far from the airport; however, the flight path is in the opposite direction of the photographed object.

This morning I was reviewing the photos and zooming on each of them and have seen in both photos of the cherry blossoms that there are glowing objects, lines and discs in the sky. In total there are 5-7 between the three photos.

I am a 42-year-old female, mother of two and I work at the public library as a circulation clerk. I have also sent a photo via email.
