Dark Low Flying Plane-Like Object on Flight Path to Seatac Airport

I was heading home from the video store when I noticed an object flying low over the ground (seemed to be less than 500 feet). The object seemed to be hovering just west of Aurora Avenue North and to the south of Woodland Park zoo. At first I thought it was a helicopter, as it seemed to be hovering for over 10 seconds. But I then noticed that it had more of the contours of an airplane. I rolled down my window expecting to hear a helicopter sound, but I heard absolutely no sound from the object. The object than started flying very slowly and completely silently at what seemed to be too low of a speed for a commercial aircraft, heading southwards across Wallingford and Lake Union towards Seatac airport. I ran home to get my binoculars and try to view the object from my deck. By the time I got to my deck, the object was far away and not very visible with my binoculars.
