Mirror ball sphere rotating in Dunwoody, Georgia for 1 hr.

On 7/9/2005, I had to let my dogs outside for a few minutes. It was very late on a Saturday night about 2:00am. I live in Dunwoody, Georgia. It was a dark night with a lot of clouds, and very damp. It had been rainning alot, due to the hurricane named Dennis, off the Gulf. A bright white light got my attention, above my house. It was about the same height as a plane would be. It made no sound. I looked up at the entire sky, and I noticed this object was brighter than the other stars. There were only 3 stars in the very dark sky. But this particular one was over my house, and it was the biggest and the brightest one. I went inside and grabbed my telescope. I actually compared it with the other stars and it was nothing like them. When I came outside, it seemed to be jumping around in a irratic movement. Through the telescope, I could see it better, and it looked like a sphere, that was like a mirror ball, but shaped oval. The object seemed to be revolving counter clockwise, as a mirror ball would do, shinning in different areas, at the same time. After observing it through the scope for a few minutes, it would hide. It seemed like everytime I really locked onto it through the scope, it would hide behind the nearby clouds. I noticed it would even go backwards. I guess I witness my first UFO. Within 2 to 3 minutes of hiding, it would return to the same location. I would grab the scope and witnessed the sphere revolving as if it had little mirror squares on it. It continued irraticly jumping around, up & down, and especially back and forth. I payed particular attention to it when it would go backwards. I watched it go backwards for quite a distance, noting that our planes do not have this capability! But it still managed to return within seconds, pretty close to the same area. I watched it appear and dissapear, in the same area, for a full hour. The entire time, it rotated and shinned like a mirror ball, bouncing around. Then I realized it was extremly late, and I had to go to bed. The mirror ball looking sphere was still there went I left it about 3:00am.
