Orange glowing sphere, vanishes above Fourth of July crowd in Seattle.

While outside of Seattle's Gasworks Park waiting for the fireworks to start, I noticed a spherical orange ball floating high above the lake. It glowed orange from within, and bobbed along moving from North to South. I pointed it out to my friend with me, and at least one other person next to me looked up and saw it to.

It stopped, held its position for a few seconds then began to rise straight up.

It disappeared in about 10-seconds. What is bizarre though, is there were NO clouds in the sky. The orange glowing ball just faded completely like going into cloaking mode.

I am amazed to see on this site that there were a lot of sightings of the orange ball, or balls in some cases.
