Bright white light over Lynnwood WA hovers for about 10 minutes before slowly moving East

Somewhere around 10:00am on October 4, 2010 looking West from I-5 in Lynnwood.

A fellow employee noticed a super bright white light in the sky west of lynnwood through his office window and asked if I saw it. The skies were mostly clear with the upper clouds moving east and the lower clouds moving to the north. I would guess the object was between the cloud layers.

The object sat stationary for about 10 minutes. It seemed to get smaller, and then back to its original size when we first saw it. All 5 of us were speculating as to what it may be but nothing made much sense to me. The brightness never changed during the entire event, even when it appeared smaller or slowly flew directly overhead to the east. Just a very bright white light.

At one point it looked like a triangular shape, at another point it looked like a baloon shape - could not really tell from the naked eye. I don't know what it was, but a jet cannot hover, I think a weather balloon would have been influenced by the winds and would not have moved east at a faster pace than the clouds, and a reflection of the sun off a metallic object would have changed as it flew directly overhead and been more yellow in color.

One person believed he saw a halo shape above it.

I am not sure what it was. It was too far to see a definate shape or hear any noise from it. Probably a rational explanation, but perhaps other have seen it or may know what it was.
