SEATTLE sighting. During daytime same day of the phoenix lights

I saw a round silver craft from my former work location which sets on a hill west of Boeing air field. From my vantage point I look east over the airport. I was sitting in my truck during my lunch brake. I was watching a small plane making an approach towards boeing field. It was a split second later that a spherical craft passed the plane in the opposite direction. This craft was moving at a very high rate of speed. I did not take my eyes from it, I thought it would dissappear at any moment. To my disbelief the craft made a sudden turn west towards my location. The day was sunny and mostly clear with some clouds. When this thing came over, once again I thought it was going to be gone. It was very quick and the craft started to dance in the sky. It litterally stopped to change directions and went east to west up and down (diagonally). I would guess the average travel distance was about one half mile per each direction change. Each traveled distance was done a second or so. It actually would at times pause in and out of the single cloud that was in that area. It went in the cloud, and when I thought it was gone it would pop out somewhere else. The craft finally left. I am surprised not to see any other reports in my area, but I am convinced that I would not have even been aware of this if I had not been focused on the aircraft that it intersected. I would like to talk to anyone who also experienced a local sighting that day.
