Bright white light hoovering in the southeast sky near Olympia

Went out to get mail, saw very bright light in southeast sky. Grabbed the binoculars, took a peek. It was a very ornate sphere that was lite on the outside from the outside but I could not see a light source. It resembled, on the outside, one of those intricately carved stone balls that has a carved stone ball inside that and another carved stone ball inside that. It was white but occasionally a black stripe or band would appear as if it were rotating. However, when I was looking at it it did not seem to be rotating until the black band zipped through.

Guessing it was about 1500 feet up and I estimate it to be about as big as a modest sized house. I did notice air traffic so they had to have seen it.

I did take video of it with my cell phone and snapped a few photos.
