Extremely bright light/object in the sky over Everett, Washington.

On January 19, 2009 I was at home with my boyfriend. We both noticed a bright white light in the sky. The light did not move and was too close to be a star or a planet. As we were looking at this extremely bright light we saw two different airplanes that appeared to fly very close to the bright object, one of the planes flew from right to left in front of the object and a few minutes later another plane flew from behind and just to the left as if the plane was coming from farther away and then getting closer.

I tried to the record the object three separate times and each time my camera would malfunction about 1 minute in and I would have to take the batteries out of my camera just to turn it off. We have been watching other airplanes in the sky and it is a very clear evening and the stars are so much farther away than this bright object. We aren't sure what this bright light in the sky is but it looks as if it is just floating in one spot
