Unusual seemingly stationary bright object

I had stepped out of the laundry room of my apartment building to the parking lot beside the building. I looked up into the sky and saw this fascinating cloud that looked like a feather. I said to myself, "There's got to be something behind that cloud." There was. When the cloud had moved away I saw a bright object. At first I thought it was a star, but thought, "It couldn't be at this hour." I continued to watch it. It seemed to be stationary like a star as the Earth moved. I went to my apartment to get my binoculars. This took about 3 or 4 minutes. The object was still there but it was a bit dimmer. Whenever I looked at it with my binoculars and tried to focus on it I couldn't get the object into focus. When there was a moment of focus it didn't look like a star. It seemed to have bright and dark areas. Interestingly, as I watched it through the binoculars another smaller object went from West to East. It was much smaller than the first object and I could focus on that one. As the Earth continued to turn and the Sun slowly began to set the object became dimmer and dimmer until it was no longer visible.
