Yellow-white dot of light moving fast over Queen Anne Hill

Yellow-white solid dot that moved parallel to the horizon, above Queen Anne hill as viewed from Magnolia. Fast, far, within the atmosphere (seemingly over Capital Hill); not a meteor, satellite, helicopter, or plane. Visible for 2-3 seconds, moved across 40-50 degrees of azimuth. Newly risen, red-orange moon was visible above Queen Anne hill, and this object passed directly beneath it.
