bright orb like light over sea tac dec 5 2011 21:00

About nine pm my roomie and l were on the deck smoking a cig. Over towards the ridge of sea tac and tukwila was a bright light in the sky. Just over horizon, about the same distance as a plane in landing mode. The orb of light was a stand still for about four min. The light was very bright and then would dim down to a tiny star size speck then get bright and full orb again. It looked like it might have had some red. And green lights spinning around it but the white orb was so bright. I looked up on the internet if a plane can look like it is at a stand still and. Found out yes but only if the plane and air are the same speed. Planes were coming in for landings at the same time this object was in the sky.. I have tried to think of all logical explanations. It was very strange. It was also a very clear night so the light couldn't have been reflecting off the clouds to give the orbed look. Four days earlier at the same time (9pm) my roomie and husband (I was as! leep) saw the exact same orb and l didn't believe them. Now I do. Since it was near the airport you could hear the planes but not the orbed light. It made no sound. Plz look into this. Thank-youit was also too dark to take pictures. It only looked like a speck of light. It did not do it justice.
