Round object travelling west above Kirkland, WA

I was in my backyard with a friend. I live on Rose Hill in Kirkland, with a clear view of the south. The sky was blue and clear, light wind, no clouds in that direction. She was ready to do a Reiki treatment for me. Right when I laid on the table, facing south, I looked up and saw an object moving slowly from W to E. Then it stopped. I asked my friend what this was. She saw the same thing. We looked at it for approx 3 minutes. In that time, it didn't move. No markings, no sound. We don't think it was an airplane or copter, and it didn't behave the way a balloon behaves. It appeared white and almost perfectly round. The sky was clear and there was no glare. It was close enough that we could watch it, knew it was something solid, but finally had to continue our session and took our eyes off it. We have no idea what it was, but have never seen anything like it before.
