Four lustrous orbs sighted over Burien

I walked out onto my porch to enjoy a sunny afternoon, when I noticed 4 lustrous orbs floating in the sky. They were to the east, above Burien I suspect, about 8 degrees in the sky, and the size of a pea when held at arm's length. I tried to make them out, but although they weren't distorted or fuzzy, there was no discernible detail other than the strange luster.

The objects climbed upward at a diagonal to the north. I watched them until they disappeared. They didn't zoom off or climb into the cloud cover, as there wasn't any that day, they just seemed to pop out of existence one by one, like each one became invisible in turn. The curious thing is that even though they appeared to climb, they never got smaller in size. They weren't moving very fast.
