Large, Sunlight reflecting metallic saucer seen in Bellingham, Wa.

Saw a very bright saucer shaped object that was approximately 1.5 - 2 miles west of my position. It's position was near the Bellingham Airport. Above it. The object remained stationary and seemed to have another smaller object hovering near it. Smaller object was undiscernable except for the sun reflecting off of it. The Larger ufo object was highly noticeable because of the brightness of the sunlight that was reflecting from it. I did not see it move at all, but it was appearing be about 1000 feet in altitude. I got tired of looking at it after 20 minutes because it was hard to look at because of the brightness, then when I looked again it was gone. and the smaller light reflecting object was gone also. I could not discern any details about the craft except for it's basic saucer like shape and twas metallic and reflecting light. also was fairly large because it was a ways away, maybe not over a half mile, but I couldnt be sure.. Seemed like it was more like 1-2 miles in distance from me. The airport was about a mile from my position at the time. The smaller object may have been a helicopter, butI couldnt hear a thing.
