Father and son witness acrobatic orange orb over Bothell, WA.

I stepped out on my back deck in which I have a full view of the Cascade Mountain range. A stationary orange light above the cloud line caught my attention. It started to move slowly and I just figured it was an airplane coming towards me at a strange angle. Then it instantly shifted direction and stopped. Then went in another direction and kept moving slowly.

I called my son from the front room and said, "You gotta see this thing". We both watched it and tried to figure out what it could be. It then started moving slowly horizontally for some distance and stopped again. Then made a vertical descent almost to the ground. This is when I could estimate how close it was as it was in front of the hill in my sight line. I'd say about a mile. Then it was just gone.
