Location: Seattle, WA
Shape: Light
Duration:15 minutes
Glowing light hovering over north Seattle.

Looked as if a helicopter hovering, but it was very bright in a yellow tinted incandescent looking glow maybe 1000' above the ground. I could not hear any helicopter sounds.

It was in a very highly populated area of Seattle, other drivers on the freeway were noticing it too. The light looked as if it was projected from a directional source laterally but had light emitting on all sides. It did not seem to be aiming its light at anything in particular. Nothing on the ground or trees appeared to be noticeably lit from the light.

I saw it while driving for about 10-15 minutes then exited the freeway and lost sight of it.
