Saw a UFO that looked like a star several times near the Big Dipper

My girlfriend and I walked down by the west end of Alki Beach and just sat around looking at stars. My girlfriend saw something moving that she quickly turned my attention to, and as soon as I did the moving object lit up like a shooting star and picked up a bit of speed heading toward the Big Dipper, specifically the star that seems like it's connecting the "cup" and the "handle" of the dipper.

Once it got to that star, the UFO lit up a couple of times, before changing direction and started to head a right above the "cup."

The star that it flew by seemed to glow brighter as the UFO passed it, and the UFO was now past the right-most stars of the Big Dipper and seemed to dim.

Then, to the left of the dipper, we saw what seemed like a shooting star this time. It lasted as long as a shooting star was supposed to.

We thought it was odd we would see that in addition to what we had just seen. Only a few moments passed when we saw the same looking object, this time going from left to right along the handle and moved down the "cup" once the "handle" ended. It disappeared again. We saw the same looking object 3 more times, all around the big dipper.
