Slow moving orb over Portland oregon

My wife and I walked out on our back porch and immediately noticed a brighter than usual light high above Portland. I was looking west from eastern Portland. The light was bright, like a star but would occasionally flash a light but I couldn't tell the color. The object was stationary, but would float slowly from side to side and sometimes up and down. At times it would do extremely quick short jumps in all directions. It took the object about 15 minutes to move what appeared to be maybe a couple the same amount of time I saw multiple airplanes fly by at normal speed. The object eventually disappeared behind the incoming cloud coverage.
