A 'fiery ball' motionless over the Pacific Ocean

At 6:07 am, I was looking over the Pacific Ocean, to the northwest, and noticed far in the distance a fiery ball in the sky. Too low to be a star or plan, too high for a boat light. I notice it was in one spot then would move very slowly to the left, stop, move slowly more left, stop. I even saw it go up in a circle and to the right a little.

I watched it for almost 15 minutes (till 6:22 am), and it faintly disappeared in the west.

Again, this object was motionless- Wasn't moving (hardly) at all. The ISS was suppose to be flying over our area (fit the sunlit description), but not until 6:40 am, viewing in the south and I am sure it wouldn't just 'stop' and hang out. I was thinking maybe coast guard, but it seemed to be too high to search and rescue; No jet or airplanes fly over that early and wouldn't stop mid-flight?! What else, A falling star?- wasn't moving fast enough!
