Red/Orange Blinking orb over the North/Northwestern sky in Portland Oregon

In the North/Northwestern sky, somewhere between 17:30 and 19:00, a blinking red/orange orb was witnessed. It was kind of low on the horizon and would blink, the way a planet or star blinks. I can saw with pretty much certainty it wasn't an object in (Outer) space, due to the fact it was pretty cloudy and overcast. You could not see any stars or the moon. So taken from that, it had to have been in the atmosphere. Anyways, It was blinking brightly, then would slowly dim, while still blinking, till it "blinked" out, so to speak. This would happen over the course of 1 - 3 minutes. Once it "blinked" out, it would be gone for like 4 - 5 minute, then reappear, all of a sudden, in what seemed to be the exact same place. This went on for at least 15 minutes, that we (the ones who witnessed it) were outside.

"To be left off the record" My wife and I, who witnessed the event, are believers in ufo/aliens/other life existence besides earth. I personally have never seen anything, nor would I wish to draw attention to myself or my wife. With that being said, My wife did take a video of it along with some pictures, I can get from her and send via e-mail. I have selected the option to have a return call, but if done so, please do it between the hours of 13:00 - 22:00 PST. Thank you
