Wobbly white light north of Seattle WA

I had stepped outside for a moment and instinctively looked up at the stars. It was warm night and mostly clear. I saw what appeared to be a satellite, and watched it as it moved in a path towards the north east. It as a white weak light, only slightly brighter as a star, and moving faster than I would expect a satellite to move.

There were no blinking lights visible so I ruled it out as plane. A satellite also seeded unlikely as I am close to a major metropolitan area with some light pollution present.

What caught my attention that made this object unusual to me was that as it moved across the sky it appeared to have a slight wobble in its flight path. I wasn't sure if what I was seeing was correct, so I tracked it's movement relative to several other "stationary" stars and it did indeed seem to have a wobble.

I eventually lost sight of the object after it passed over some trees in my neighbor's yard.
