Hovering lights spotted over FIFE, WA

I would like to begin that I am a former member of the us navy and have a very good eye for aircraft. Being in the seattle area I am able to identify every aircraft day or night by its light patterns. tonight I was in my work parking lot near the auburn park and ride. My attention was first brought to a craft which lights were similar to but not consistent with any craft I have seen hovering over the sky about in the airspace of fife, WA. After just a few moments of watching the solid red, blue, and white lights I noticed there were too many white lights and suddenly the red and white lights were eminating its source outward toward the sky around it. They were red and white lights almost pulsating and changing direction much like a a police car pulling over a car. Now I first tried to see whether it was in fact airborne as I live in the valley. I was hoping that perhaps it was high on a hill, however it was not. After about 5 mins of watching these pulsating lights (which as a result looked as though the craft was elongated or disk shaped) its colors changed to solid white and blinking red like an FAA approved aircraft. It began to move north west in the directing of the olympic pennisula rather that the sea tac airport as I would expect such an aircraft to do. Ill be honest in all of my days observing aircraft day, night, shipboard, on land, and at sea I was frightened and concerned for the aircraft I could see preparing to land at sea tac. It maintained the same altitude while it moved from its hovering position with a slight decent maybe 1 or two degrees which is consistent with a craft going further from view. It was dark, but I have never seen an aircraft emminate that many lights so irradically. I hope that you people can maybe try and find a logical explination for this. Yes I know it was dark, yes there is airtraffic for both lewis/mcchord and seatac however this wasnt any aircraft light pattern I have ever seen. I sho! uld have recorded it however the truth is the resolution would! nt have been ideal at the distance i was from the object. I wish I would have, but i was focused on gathering all information i could to reject the fact it was a ufo.
