Bright morphing star 0 to figure 8 formation above Seattle and 3 brightest object in sky

I was returning dishes to kitchen when i looked outside and saw a extremely bright star to the south it seemed to split vertically into a figure 8 shape it semed to do this several times as i was watching it i then saw what appeared to be an orange flash from a light. It stayed in the same area of sky for the duration i was watching it it was the brighest object in sky next to moon and mars.Anybody else see that?

((NUFORC Note: Report is not inconsistent with a "sighting" of the star, "Sirius." Just a guess. PD))
