2 Disc shaped gray objects seen over New Westminster

This isn't the first time I've sent in a report to your website. I'm kind of dissapointed that over the last 2 months I've witnessed several bizzare objects in the sky with a witness, but didn't report them to you and I should have. I'm a very observant of the skies due to the fact that I've seen many of these ojects in my life.

Today, on my last coffee break of the day 3:15 P.M., I wondered down 7th Street in New Westminster, B.C., Canada. This is how my sighting transpired.

I noticed in the sky what appeared to be some floating garbage or black balloons of some type which seemed to be liked together like a cluster of balloons with a definate arrow shape to the mass. This seemed a little odd and puzzling this shape. The distance of this floating garbage or ballons when I first spotted it was probably 20 stories high compared to the height of a high rise building. Whatever this was flying up in the air, I just thought, it's got to be garbage and didn't think anything much of it, but I did continue to watch this (garbage) float upwards with what I assume was air currents moving it upwards. As my head was looking up towards the sky in an easterly direction at this floating garbage, I caught sight of a disc shaped grey object moving rapidly skimming the clouds and moving fast and steady from an easterly direction towards a south western direction. It moved smoothly across the sky from the East and curved on an angle towards a South Westerly direction. I watched it move across the sky till infinity (I couldn't see it anymore). I had a fix on this object for at least 30 seconds crossing the sky. It wasn't a bird or small plane. Stunned at what I saw, and frankly, if it wasn't for that (garbage thing) floating upwards, I probably wouldn't have seen this object at all.

I looked in the sky where I originally had first spotted the object (which was in the easterly sky) and about 45 seconds to 1 minute after the pass of the first object, there was a second flying object of similar size, heading from an Easterly direction towards a definate Southern direction. At the moment that I spotted this second object, there was an airliner in the sky heading towards Vancouver airport. This object was much higher than the plane, and this 2nd object also was skimming the clouds as well.

That's all I have right now, plain and simple, but I wanted to get this one to you for sure this time.
