Red pulsating sphere in OR- UFO?

As I was driving North-bound on I-5 from Salem to Portland, Oregon, I saw one red sphere object in the NWW sky around 12:20a 7/17/12. It was pulsating red in moderate frequency. It was too close to be a satelite but too far to be a telephone signal pole device- it was silimar to a plane but slightly larger and did not move. It did not have white or green lights on it. It was fairly high in the sky for most of the sighting (about 30 mins duration). Towards the end of the sighting, it seemed to have lowered in altitude and gone slightly more westward. The night was clear and the object appeared below the big dipper constellation. It did not have noise to it nor did it have a trail.
