Regarding the idea that the ufo photos posted in the OP is the sun: It seems the best way to determine if this is possible is to simply determine
what time and direction the sun was actually rising at at the times claimed. The sun will rise in a set position, at least from the point of view of
the casual observer - I think we can agree that it will not bounce around or be in a wide area - especially in a 30 second window as Pyrka claims.
It will move but really not in any noticeable or radical degree. Two of the photos of the "orbs" appear to be in roughly the same location, while
the third seems to be in a different area (the one with the orangish sky is the odd man out - which is a bit troubling).
Using a wheather report from a nearby area:

We can see that time of sunrise for Coventry (which is not too far off) on July 12, 2010 is 4:58 A.M - roughly 5:00 AM in the area.
Sunrise/Sunset for Coventry
This is nearly an hour and a half after Andrew Pyrka and his friend say they got onto the field. Of course it doesnt seem like the article lists a
time for the photos so we don' know how long they were out there, but it is suggestive. If they were taking pictures of sunrise then it means they
waited an hour and a half. If we had the exif data from his camera then we could check this.
We know that Pyrka was standing in the crop circle formation from his interview. - so we have a location for where the photos were taken from.
It turns out that sunrise was in the direction of NE. I am assuming that that means if you look to the NE then that is where the sun will be as it
rises- (If I have got this wrong I am sure someone will tell me!) I am no meterological expert (or astronomical for that matter!).
direction of sunrise for 15 July in a nearby area
(I am sure that the direction of the sunrise is not going to change radically in the space of a few days or for a nearby area).
Using google earth I superimpose direction of sunrise and the reputed path of the orbs in relation to north and the position of the circle.
It appears that sunrise is in the almost exact opposite direction from where the pictures were taken (facing the river from inside the crop circle
formation). If this is true and I have not got the direction of the sun totally screwed up (which is altogether possible) then the conclusion must be
that it could not have been the sun.
Of course there s not a lot of identifying features in the photos themselves but 2 do show a sharp bend in the path and all are against a forest
background. Judging from google earth there is no other dense or continuous forest line available except that which goes along the river. I think
the most probable position for the sharp bend in the path is to the east of where the formation was found, where it appears 3 paths converge.
