Circular red object paralleling airplane after takeoff from Seatac

On April 19th, 2015, I was outside on my deck located in West Seattle (a neighborhood just Southwest ) of the main downtown core of Seattle, WA, with an approx. 240 degree view from N-NW to S-SW with Boeing Field (KBFI ) and Seatac Intl airport ( KSEA ) flight lines in view at all times of the day and night.

At approx 11:10 pm PST I witnessed a twin propeller Alaska airlines flight (I know the airplane and carrier from experience and flight paths) depart Seatac Intl. airport and fly due north before making a westward turn towards my location at the above address.

When the airplane was almost directly overhead (approx 85-87 degrees), I witnessed what appeared to be a very bright red circular object/orb appear off the right wing of the plane.

This bright red object followed the plane before I ran to the sliding door on our deck and called for my girlfriend to come witness this object and as she came outside, the object disappeared but during the time I witnessed the object it paralleled the airplane off the right wing in perfect alignment with the airplane in a westward direction before disappearing.

My girlfriend and I were on the deck and as I am showing as well as describing what I saw to her, a very bright streak appeared directly overhead moving West to East in what I approximate to be the very same path the object I initially saw take with the airplane.

This streak was very sudden and abrupt and travelling at extreme speed (I did NOT see an object with this "streak" whatever it was ) but found it to be coincidental considering what I had just witnessed.
