Eradic moving, flashing light over West Seattle / Puget Sound.

I was on my deck at 9:25 which faces west and saw an aircraft of some sort with flashing lights over West Seattle, (probably over the water as it is hard to discerne)anyway, it was bright at first and moving in a southerly direction. I grabbed the binocs and watched it and by this time it was moving away from me at a west/n. west direction. The strange thing though is that this light, flashing white and red was not in a regular fashion like a jet and the light was bouncing in my view....like not steady at all, it would be high then to the side, then lower, very eradic. I've actually seen this several times and I noticed someone else a couple months ago reported a similar sighting wondering if anyone else had seen this. I have several times and this is NO PLANE or helicopter or star in my opinion, this thing moves~travels in a very eradic way. I also see dozens of jets and other small aircraft on a daily basis being right near and under the flight patterns, so I know what they look like and how they behave in their flight patterns. I watched this bouncy light as it went off towards the Olympic Mountains and out of my view. I can't imagine no-one else seeing this thing, so would be interesting to see if there are any other reports. There were commercial aircraft in their normal flight patterns above this thing when I was watching it...not even close to the same.
