Lynnwood W.A. spherical with lights

I was coming home from work last night at about 10:30 P.M., had just come off the feeway and was headed down my street, when I looked up to my right and just above the treelines I saw what I first mistook as the Seattle Spaceneedle. It was spherical and had multi-colored lights along the base that were chasing each other, and it had a red ball on the top. The body was dark, and I didn't see the underside of it because of the treeline. I realized a split second later that it couldn't be the spaceneedle because that particular building is about 15 miles away, and this sphere was between 1/4 and 1/2 mile away. I had my windows cracked open because it was a warm night, and I don't have a radio in my car, but I didn't hear anything that sounded mechanical or electrical. As I went down the road I lost track of it in the treeline. I didn't see it take off, but as this happened within a couple blocks of my house I went to go get my husband, and after I located him there was no sign of it. I would be very interested to know if there were any other reportings for that time and dates
